For 2015, they have expanded their event list to include gaming tournaments, trivia, role playing contests, a screening Marvel’s latest film Ant-Man, Cosplay Fashion Show, actor Alex Zahara will once again be on Skype and share his journey! LibriCon is free entertainment for the whole family to celebrate mainstream pop culture, comics, movies, and science fiction!


Comic Window Mural Drawing

Visitors to the Montrose Cultural Centre and participants attending the LibriCon 2015 event are invited to draw their favourite superhero or an enchanted creature, using window markers. Make your mark and add a twist to the visual dialogue characters are having with each other! 

The Comic Window Mural Drawing is a community art installation facilitated by the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie. It is a group project that invites all visitors to contribute a small piece to the larger mural using the provided Window Markers. A collaborative artwork like this allows everyone to participate and for visitors to view it change and grow over time.
