An art museum for Jack Kirby? Maybe…
Above photo: I just love this photo of comics’ legend, Jack Kirby. And I love the idea of a Kirby museum just as much.
Randy Hoppe of the Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center states in "So, where is the Jack Kirby Museum?":
Our intention is to set up a temporary, or "pop-up," brick-and-mortar location for the Jack Kirby Museum during this November, December and January. The ideal size for this purpose is between 800-1,200-square-feet, and would feature original artwork, artifacts from Jack’s life, prominent guest speakers, educational programs and installation pieces inspired by and celebrating the unique work and life of Jack Kirby.
A space like this dedicated entirely to the life and work of Jack Kirby would be equally appealing to seasoned art patrons, pop-art connoisseurs, casual fans, tourists, and families. Successful implementation of this pop-up museum will allow us to pursue the ultimate goal of a PERMANENT space for the Museum in the near future.
Again, nothing like this has ever been attempted. And, in order to make this happen, we need funding.
