The Power of Words and Pictures: Nate Powell’s Original Artwork for March
Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center
Bridgwaters Lounge, first floor
September 18–October 1
Nate Powell is a New York Times best-selling graphic novelist and co-creator of the award-winning graphic novel series March. The goal of the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center’s special exhibition of Powell’s original artwork, on view September 18–October 1, is to bring attention to the free Power of Words event presented by The Friends of the Library and Monroe County Public Library at 7:30 p.m. on September 21 at IU Auditorium. The event features the creators of March, civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Powell.
On display at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center are original drawings and panels published in March: Book One and March: Book Two. In addition, Powell has supplied several unpublished and alternate pages from the books and an original tryout page before he joined Lewis and Aydin to create March.
