The Kirby Museum today announced an initive to bring the works of Jack Kirby to the public on a grander scale. This from the museum's website:

"Our intention is to set up a temporary, or “pop-up,” brick-and-mortar location for the Jack Kirby Museum during this November, December and January. The ideal size for this purpose is between 800-1,200-square-feet, and would feature original artwork, artifacts from Jack’s life, prominent guest speakers, educational programs and installation pieces inspired by and celebrating the unique work and life of Jack Kirby."

"A space like this dedicated entirely to the life and work of Jack Kirby would be unprecedented. It would be equally appealing to seasoned art patrons, pop-art connoisseurs, casual fans, tourists, and families. Successful implementation of this pop-up museum will allow us to pursue the ultimate goal of a PERMANENT space for the Museum in the near future." Rand Hoppe, Curator of The Jack Kirby Museum

Nothing like this has ever been attempted. And, in order to make this happen, the museum needs funding. Fast. Please visit the Kirby Museum website for more information and a chance to donate to this great cause. Go Here!
