Art+Feminism Special Guest: MariNaomi

 Art+Feminism is an international community that strives to close the information gap about gender, feminism and the arts on the internet. In conjunction with the 2021 Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, hear from award-winning author, illustrator and cartoonist MariNaomi.

As a way to highlight underrepresented cartoonists, MariNaomi founded and maintains the Cartoonists of Color, Queer Cartoonists and Disabled Cartoonists databases. These databases are used by booksellers, librarians, academics, editors, book publishers, event organizers, readers and more. This event features a conversation between MariNaomi and Caitlin McGurk, Associate Curator and Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University's Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. This event was presented by the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum and University Libraries.
