Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs

The exhibition "Roz Chast:  Cartoon Memoirs" was on display at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge from June 6 to October 26, 2015. It is currently on view at the Museum of the City of New York through October 16. I got to see it on Thursday evening after Bob Mankoff's presentation. The museum's usual hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Note:  The exhibition "Roz Chast:  Cartoon Memoirs" is the subject of an excellent New York Social Diary post by Jill Krementz. Really, you should have started there.

I think we can all agree that this blog could benefit a great deal from more original art by Roz Chast. If you have any to contribute here, please send me a photo or scan.
