Archie exhibition opens tonight at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art
Thu Nov 19
It's no secret that we at Time Out Kids are big fans of Archie comics . Last spring, in conjunction with Kids Comic Con , we held a contest in which one lucky winner—a girl named Summer—got to appear as a character in an issue of the beloved, long-running series. It's not surprising that the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art shares our obsession. Its latest exhibit, "The Art of Archie Comics," opens tonight and stays on view through February 28. Check out rare and unpublished Archie pages, vintage house ads, news clippings, toys and merchandise spanning 65 years. If your kids have yet to fall for Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Reggie, this display is an ideal way to introduce them to the teenage crew. Tonight's opening reception begins at 7pm. $5, kids under 13 free. MoCCA, 594 Broadway between Houston and Prince Sts, , Ste 401 (212-254-3511, moccany.org).
