The event mixes the theatre-arts skills of costuming with the visual arts of pop media in a unique and fun mash-up that gives everyone an excuse to free their inner hero!
“We are so excited to host this event,” says Boheme Director Sabrina Langlois. “We believe it is a unique concept and something that has never been done in Nashville!”
Comixstravaganza is a two part event. During the daytime hours of 12 noon – 6 PM, Boheme will feature original art from local professional comic book artists in a gallery setting, and will feature an artist’s alley
