Rand is under the weather!
We’re sorry to report that our Walking Tour guide, Museum Founder Rand Hoppe is not feeling well and will not be able to host the tour on the Monday, the 28th. However, he should be fine in a week on Monday, September 4th, so we’re re-scheduling until then at 6:00pm.
Details remain much the same:
Starting at 6:00 pm at the corner of Delancey and Essex Streets, we’ll make our way to Kirby’s birthplace, then to the location of his boyhood home, and will end at the location of the boy’s club that was instrumental to his upbringing. If you’ve attended the tour in the past, an exciting new location will be added!
At each stop, we will share stories and facts about Jack Kirby’s life on the Lower East Side and engage in some friendly Q&A about his work and career. There will also be a guerrilla street theater reading of his autobiographical story Street Code near where he grew up, and (new!) trivia questions with prizes! Check our website or social feeds for more information as the date gets closer.
This is a free, non-ticketed event. Donations welcome! Show up and celebrate with us!
The tour will last approximately 90 minutes with a walking distance of less than a mile. The tour will be livestreamed! Again, more details as we get closer.
