Weekend Kickoff Reception

CXC always begins with a reception on Friday night at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. 

This time we're bringing it to you! Join us in cyberspace for a Pictionary-like game we're calling "Paper Charades" followed by a behind the scenes tour of the Billy Ireland vault, unlike anything you've seen before. 

We've thrown in a few surprises that you won't want to miss.
