Boskone is known for its Art Show, in large part that is due to the incredible (and often Herculean) work done by Joe Siclari and Edie Stern. Join us for one last special exhibit from Joe and Edie featuring their favorite pieces that have not been shown at a Boskone before.
Over the last 15 years, Joe Siclari and Edie Stern have put together over a dozen Historical Art Retrospectives for Boskone and World Fantasy Conventions. They have compiled some of the most interesting and engaging speculative art exhibits in fandom that showed the growth of the art in science fiction and fantasy. These exhibits were put together with contributions from dozens of collectors and artists, as well as from their own collections. Their special exhibits have been special gems in the Boskone experience and you won’t want to miss out on this, their final Boskone exhibit.
