While the exhibition part of PIX ends at 6:00pm, the evening is young! Following the close of the exhibition, there will be a 90 minute break during which we will convert the PIX exhibition space into theater-style seating. We encourage PIX participants to avail themselves of a dining experience at one of the countless Southside eateries during this time and then to head back to PIX for what we hope will be an evening of engaging Independent Comics programming! As with the exhibition portion of PIX, there is no charge for admission to the programming.
Here’s what we have in store for you:
