Art Program

The Art in Science Fiction and Fantasy

Has the digital revolution in publishing changed science fiction art? How can new artists break in?  Who are the greatest SF artists of all time? How can you start collecting art? If these and other questions and discussions about science fiction and fantasy art are intriguing to you, then you have something to look forward to in the MidAmeriCon II art programming. 

In the art program we will cover topics of interest to established artists, new artists, collectors and people who simply like what they see. From an identification program that shows you key characteristics of well-loved artists, to serious discussions on the business of art, explorations of Guest of Honor Kinuko Craft’s body of work, to the not-so-occasional foray into comics and graphic novels, you’ll find program items that will inform as well as entertain. 

We hope to surprise you too. To make sure that we cover a lot of different artistic viewpoints, we have solicited advice from some of the foremost experts in the field.  But we also want to know what art programs you would like to see.  Get your thoughts to us soon at programming@midamericon2.org!
