Cartoon Crossroads 2022

February 21, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

COLUMBUS, Ohio, February 16, 2022 — Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC), the international showcase for cartoon art, is excited to announce its return to an in-person show for the fall of 2022. This year’s show will take place from October 6 to 9 and will feature a guest list of renowned and up-and-coming creators and the return of the expo on the Saturday and Sunday of the festival. All events are free to the public.

“We are excited to put a spotlight on the best in the cartoon arts and bring artists and fans together,” says Jay B. Kalagayan, CXC’s new executive director. “We learned invaluable lessons during last year’s event, working with our partners on maintaining a safe environment for our artists and attendees.”

“We originally had September dates planned for our return to an in-person show in 2022, but unfortunately (or fortunately, when we remember that Columbus is our home and we love to see it thrive), there were too many September events that would decrease hotel room availability, including the big game between Ohio State and Wisconsin,” says Kalagayan. “Moving the festival to October builds on an exciting fall season in the city and should benefit all of our artists and attendees. ”

“A unique element of CXC is the role of Columbus and Ohio, long considered the cradle of great cartoonists,” said Rebecca Perry Damsen, president of CXC’s board of directors. “The show attracts world-class guests to a city that has become a global center for the cartoon arts, adding to an already vibrant arts community.”

“It’s our eighth annual Festival and we are optimistic that this is the year we will finally see more of each other in person,” said Jeff Smith, CXC’s co-founder and artistic director, and author of the Bone graphic novels, “This October CXC promises to be an exciting return to form with more of the world’s great cartoonists, as we continue to celebrate the history and creators of our favorite art form!”

Festival organizers will have more information about CXC 2022 in the coming months. Follow CXC on social media (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) or check cartooncrossroadscolumbus.org for the latest.

CXC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that draws together Columbus educational and arts organizations including the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus College of Art & Design, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Columbus Metropolitan Library. The festival is generously supported by the Greater Columbus Arts Council

CXC aims to provide an international showcase for the best of cartoon art in all its forms, including comics, animation, editorial cartoons, newspaper strips, and beyond, in a city that is a growing center of importance to comics and cartooning. The festival also focuses on helping the next generation of young talent develop careers that invigorate the industry for years to come.
