Our latest Local Art @ EPL exhibit showcases the work of the legendary illustrator Hal Foster – a long-time Evanston resident and the father of the modern comic book. From now through the end of January, the fascinating display A Tribute to Hal Foster will be featured on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch. Organized by local comic-book aficianado Sid Weiskirch, the exhibit includes over 50 restored and enlarged reprints of Foster’s classic Prince Valiant and Tarzan comics and retraces his three-decade-long career beginning in the 1930’s. To preview the exhibit and learn more about Foster, check out this recent interview with Mr. Weiskirch along with the recent biography Hal Foster, Prince of Illustrators.
