From the March 13, 2014 edition

The Columbus Museum of Art and Thurber House named Lilli Carré the winner of the third annual Graphic Novelist Residency, a three-week program designed to provide a graphic artist/writer the opportunity to develop a work-in-progress and exhibit at Columbus Museum of Art.

Carré, who works and lives in Chicago, has received national acclaim and multiple awards for her latest work, “Heads or Tails,” a short story graphic novel collected over the last five years. The collection features a variety of narratives — short stories like the celebrated "The Thing About Madeline" (featured in The Best American Comics 2008), experimental one-pages and graphic novellas like "The Carnival"— illuminated by beautiful visuals.

Carré will be working and living in Columbus during the residency, and will showcase her work in the “2014 Graphic Novelist Residency Exhibition,” which opens March 14. She’ll also participate in an Artist’s Talk and Interview 2 p.m. March 30.
