Johnny: “Both before and after being voted America’s #1 Young Entrepreneur of 2008 by BusinessWeek magazine, I’ve lectured at universities… all over the world. These lectures focus on how to start and maintain an original business without any startup money or other resources. I have a lot of generally useful advice- like how to use both the web and retail space effectively, the importance of art, graphic design, creative packaging and other often overlooked details, how to create a lot of word of mouth excitement behind your business, and brand longevity. I also cover less conventional dimensions of my brand… how a drug-free lifestyle has really helped me develop my business, my own creative types of viral marketing, and my unique and carefully crafted shopping environments.”

Bang! Thwack! Plop! Comics: An Influence on Contemporary Art

February 6th– March 1st

10:00a.m.-5:00p.m.

Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

This exhibition explores the intersection of comics and art with specific attention on how certain themes and stylistic forms have crossed over from the genre of comics into the world of visual art. The exploding popularity of comics, mostly through animation and graphic novels, shows us the graphic or comic impulse has become a compelling means of artistic communication. This exhibition helps point toward a growing interdisciplinary trend in the arts that allows for a flow of ideas between media and form, creating a liberation of high art.

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is open Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
