Opening at the Toonseum Tonight!

What are your plans on this dreary, snowy night? I hope they involve brightening your spirits by going to the (free) opening of Brenda Starr: The Art of Dale Messick tonight (March 11th, 7-9pm) at the Toonseum! From their site:
Brenda Starr: The Art of Dale Messick presents to audiences with a unique opportunity to see Messick's art up-close and personal. The exhibit presents pieces from the ToonSeum's permanent collection as well as incredible pieces from the collection of comics' matriarch and Brenda-expert Trina Robbins.
Robbins, who will host several events at the ToonSeum in late March, comments on the importance of Brenda Starr as a feminist milestone in American culture. "There had been plenty of women drawing comics over the years prior to Brenda, but they had stuck to subjects considered 'safe for women.' But Messick's work all features Depression era heroines born ahead of their time, working girls come to the big city to earn their living."
