The other day, I met with the Director, Karl Erickson and Board Chairperson, Ellen Abramowitz of the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in lower Manhattan.  They asked to meet with me because they wanted to see if I would like to have a retrospective of my work at the museum this October, date of opening tbd.  I am very excited. After three decades of work, how do I choose? What do I call it?  I need your feedback. Here’s what I have so far. Should it be:

1. The Fun and Folly of Liza Donnelly

or 2. Decades of Donnelly

The show also coincides with the publication of my new book, When Do They Serve The Wine? The Folly, Flexibility and Fun of Being a Women. There will be an opening (which I will share with the legendary cartoonist Al Jaffee, whose work will also be on exhibition); and an evening dedicated to the book and to partying. The date of the book evening is November 11th, hope to see some of you there.

  1. Decades of Donnelly! It’s fun to say and easy to remember 🙂 Wish I could see the retrospective.

    One thought: “When Do They Serve the Wine? The Donnelly Decades.”

    Can’t wait to see your show!

    Congratulations! But make sure your show emphasizes Vassar — if not in the title, then at least in all of the informational tags/catalogue. With such a potentially large/elite audience, it’s so important that every single person knows your affiliation to Vassar as the country’s foremost educational institution. Again, congratulations!

    First off, congrats! What a great opportunity!
    How about the “Delightful Decades of Donnelly”

      So…my title will not have Vassar in it (sorry, Harry, but this audience will have to figure it out on their own). It will be “Decades of Donnelly: The Art of Liza Donnelly” Thanks for all your suggestions!
