About This Project

With Columbus as a well-known hub of comic art and culture, dreaming up the annual Graphic Novelist Residency Award was a no-brainer for co-organizers Thurber House and the Columbus Museum of Art. The intensive three-week residency is gaining in scope and national recognition. For the residency's third year, CMA is working to bring Graphic Novelist Lilli Carré to Columbus March 15-April 5, 2014.

Lilli Carré is an artist and illustrator working in experimental animation, comics and print. You may know her work from The New York Times or New Yorker magazine. Lilli is the 3rd Graphic Novelist Residency Award winner, following in the footsteps of Paul Hornschemeier and Ed Piskor. Her time here will be spent in talks, interviews, workshops, visits with the Columbus comics community, researching, and being creative on a work-in-progress. A 3-month exhibition in CMA’s Forum gallery will showcase Lilli’s previous work and artistic process.

You can help bring Lilli to the Columbus Museum of Art and support the Graphic Novelist Residency, forwarding our mission of providing great experience with great art for everyone!
