¡Kirby-Zone! in NYC this Friday night!

Kirby-Zone-3

We’re hosting our first fund-raising event “¡Kirby-Zone!” this Friday night smack dab on New York City’s Lower East Side at 103 Allen Street. You know, the neighborhood Jack Kirby worked so hard to move his family OUT of. Nevertheless, we’ll have some wine, appetizers, a small silent auction, and a screening of Kirby’s 1984 appearance on “The Zone Show”.

The recently uncovered video interview was a hit at San Diego this past July, with Kirby’s comments juxtaposing hilariously with 1980s video SFX. The video will be projected at 8:30.

“I finally got the Kirby “thing.” I love his art but didn’t understand the devotion until I saw this fascinating recently discovered interview” – NIcky Wheeler-Nicholson

The Kirby Museum will share our plans for our next Pop-Up on the Lower East Side that opens on Veterans’ Day, and some activities planned to celebrate Kirby’s 100th biirthday in 2017.

The silent auction will contain some items (not original art, nor anything signed by Kirby) we’ve obtained in recent years.

Along with the show, free booze! We will be joined by author and winemaker Birk O’Halloran, the owner of Iconic Wine. In addition to the wines being poured at some of the top restaurants in the country, the labels feature art by such great comic artists as Ming Doyle and Cliff Chiang. Birk will be featuring a line of his wines that retail from $18 to $60 a bottle! Guess which ones will go first? So get here early!

Advance tickets are $15, $20 at the door.

Thanks to Johnny Zone and Eric Kurland. The video was digitized and provided to the Kirby Museum by 3-D Space: The Center For Stereoscopic Photography, Art, Cinema, and Education in Los Angeles, and on the web at www.3-DSPACE.org

Another year, Another Calgary Expo!

Steve Coates, along with Logan and Selena, put together a Jack Kirby Museum exhibit at the Calgary Expo. Steve reports there was considerable attention from guests and attendees, with new members signing up on the spot and many interested in supporting our efforts in the future.

Paul Kupperberg and Barry Kitson where scheduled to appear at the Expo and take part in Saturday’s Jack Kirby Tribute panel, but both had to postpone their appearance. Luckily and eagerly, Kevin Eastman and David Lloyd stepped in and appeared at the panel.

It was a busy four-day weekend, but Steve reports he was able to meet with some of the guest artists. Steve would like to say a big thank you to Scott Shaw! and Mark McKenna for their anecdotes and kindness. Also, a “Cowabunga!” to Kevin and Courtney Eastman for their support through a very busy weekend. Steve also expressed regret at not finding enough time to visit with David Lloyd.

Welcome aboard to the new museum members and a thank you to Logan and Selena Coates, Steve says he couldn’t do it without you! Another thank you to Lorraine, a volunteer who spent considerable time helping at the exhibit.
