The Great Neck Arts Center hosts 46 extraordinary, talented cartoon, animation, Manga & illustration artists who will be exhibiting and visiting the Arts Center for a rare exhibition of original work by the best loved cartoonists.

To name a few: Sy Barry (The Phantom), Mort Drucker (Mad Magazine), Hy Eisman (Popeye), Stan Goldberg (Archie), Bunny Hoest (TheLockhorns), Arnie Levin (The New Yorker), Mike Lynch (Wall Street Journal), Don Orehek (Playboy), Rina Piccolo (Tina’s Groove) & lots more. Exhibition Dates: August 12th - October 1, 2006.

The Great Neck Arts Center's architecture does not have an Italian facade nor Romanesque columns, but what they do have is The Great(est) Art(istic) Center. You do not have to go to Paris to learn Art or to Italy to learn Music. The Great Neck Arts Center has it all!
