Spring 2023 Art Faculty Colloquium: Professor Lynda Barry

Lynda Barry has worked as a painter, cartoonist, writer, and teacher and found they are very much alike. Her weekly comic strip ran in alternative newspapers across North America for thirty years. She’s authored 21 books, received numerous awards and honors for her work, including five William Eisner awards, the Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cartoonists Society, and the Reuben Award for Cartoonist of the Year. In 2016 she was inducted into the Cartoonist’s Hall of Fame in 2016. In 2019 Lynda Barry was honored as a MacArthur Fellow. A generous grant from the Chazen Family enabled her to establish and equip the UW-Madison’s Comics Room, making it one of the liveliest and happiest workspaces on campus.
