Lesbian artist Alison Bechdel (left) with Chicagoan Riva Lehrer, also an acclaimed artist, at the opening of Bechdel's exhibit, "Fevered Archives: 30 years of comics from the not-so-mixed-up files of Alison Bechdel," April 5, at the University of Chicago Centers for Gender/Race Studies, 5733 S. University Ave., 1st Floor. The exhibit hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., through May 18.

The opening was packed with students and Bechdel fans from throughout the area.

The exhibit is part of the Artists' Salon project, which brings artists whose work meditates on sexuality and gender to the Center to mount temporary exhibitions. The inaugural year of the Artists' Salon features this exhibit of comics work by the world-famous cartoonist Bechdel, creator of the long-running serial strip Dykes to Watch Out For and the graphic memoirs Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic (2006) and Are You My Mother? (Houghton Mifflin May 2012). Bechdel is in residence at the University of Chicago for spring quarter 2012 as a Mellon Fellow for Arts Practice and Scholarship at the Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry.

Persons with disabilities who need an accommodation in order to participate in this event should contact the event sponsor for assistance.
