Comic Books are one of the few true American art forms. At Challengers Comics + Conversation we strive to make comic books accessible to everyone; no matter who you are or what you do, there is a comic book out there you will love. We want to help you find it. And with the creation of The Rogues Gallery, we want to show everyone the passion, skill and love that go into the creation of every page of every comic book.
Comic Art is so vibrant and inspiring and even the most die-hard of comic fans almost never get an opportunity to see the true craftsmanship of original art in its natural form. We will bring comic creators from across the globe to exhibit their work in Chicago. We have the space, we have the connections... we need your help in putting it all together.
The goal of this project is to be able to afford the build-out it takes to complete the gallery. Pained walls, windows that don't leak, working ducts, those are our main goals. And if we get enough funding? Carpet, gallery lights, maybe a few movable walls. We have a lot of great exhibits planned for the winter; we just need a finished place to show them.
The Rogues Gallery will be more than a gallery. It will be used to hold all of our free community activities. Our monthly All-Ages Read-Along group (CHALLENGEjrs), our Graphic Novel book club (Chattingers), Art Classes (The Visual Field), charity fund-raisers, and more. We have big, big plans for The Rogues Gallery, and we’re grateful to you for helping us bring these dreams to life. Art is for everyone and we’re all for art.
