In the exhibition area on the second level of Bayou Building Atrium I, a selection of illustrations by UHCL students will also be on view. Then, on Saturday, Sept. 21, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., UHCL is pleased to present “comiCulture: From Creation to Consumption,” a symposium featuring expert guests who work in the comic book industry.
