Starting in 2013, the Crocker Art Museum has presented a showcase of regional comic book creatives along with a celebration of the popular arts at the museum.
As the co-founder and co-coordinator, I view the goal of this collaborative event with the Crocker Art Museum as twofold:
+Spur an better appreciation of both the museum's collection of artwork from around the world and ages to fans of the popular arts.
+Promote the artistic and cultural value of the popular arts, particularly comics, to patrons of the museum.
All this amid a lively and celebratory evening featuring live music, live performances, interactive exhibits and artwork, live podcasts, casual drinks, board games, spotlighting many local comic book shops, and so much more!

EVERY 2nd Thursday in SEPTEMBER At the Crocker Art Museum!
Fun fact! The Crocker Art Museum is oldest American museum west of the Mississippi!
The Crocker Tron is the Art Mix | CrockerCon mascot. Each year the Crocker Art Museum asks a different artist in our Sacramento comics community to “transform” the Crocker Art Museum into a robotic bastion that seeks to protect and preserve all arts.
The tradition started with Sean Sutter in 2015 and has since been reimagined by Michael Calero in 2016, Nate Flamm in 2017, Melissa Pagluica in 2018, and Dan Bethel in 2019.
