On Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, in conjunction with the Boomfest International Comics Festival, a small exhibition of my prints opened at the Nabokov Museum at 47 Bolshaya Morskaya Street, St. Petersburg, Russia – Vladimir Nabokov’s home until the age of 18, described in Speak, Memory. The museum occupies the building’s first floor and contains artifacts and a library relating the great novelist; the upper floors are occupied by an art school for children. Photo [top] crowd at the opening; [middle] corner of the exhibition and [bottom] museum gallery. The exhibit runs through Oct. 12.
