Randy Emberlin, well known Spider-man comic book artist and cartoon animator, is at the museum today to talk to middle school students about the art of comic books and animation. The students are familiar with many of his characters, such as Wonder Woman, Spider-man, Batman, G.I. Joe, Star Wars and many others. We're expecting 300 students to experience his multi-media presentations in the Moreland Auditorium.

This is also the final week of Earl Newman's colorful retrospective in the Moreland. The two artists' work complement each other, creating a very fun atmosphere. Randy is a jazz fan, and he was excited to see Earl's 2010 Monterey Jazz Festival poster.

What a pleasure it is to host such talented artists!
