Binghamton Bundy Museum Showcases the Work of B.C.’s Johnny Hart
I very much enjoy Binghamton’s “First Friday” Art Walk every month. For many Southern Tier residents, it is the highlight of the month as there is always something new to see and do.
Friday, I made my first-ever stop at the Bundy Museum of History & Art on the West side of Binghamton at 129 Main Street. The Bundy Museum is rich in Binghamton history; everything from the beginning dreams of IBM to Endicott Johnson Shoes to broadcasters in the Southern Tier.
On the second floor of the Bundy, is a up close and personal look at the life and work of Johnny Hart. Born in Endicott in 1931, Johnny Hart is known around the world for his amazing B.C. and Wizard of Id, two comic strips that earned Johnny “Cartoonist of the Year” in 1968 and 1984, respectively.
The Johnny Hart exhibit features a fascinating look at pre-B.C. illustrations, comic strips, photographs and artwork by the comic legend, presented by The Hart family.
If you missed the Art Walk this month, the exhibit will run through May 30th. The Bundy Museum is open to the public, Tuesday through Saturday from 11am-5pm at 129 Main Street, Binghamton.
