LOGAN — Anthropologists study more than cavemen and pharaohs. This week, they’re taking a closer look at comic books and their impact on society.
The fun starts at 10 a.m. Saturday, and continues until 4 p.m., at Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology. Museum visitors are invited to make their own comic book characters throughout the day.
Paul Ryan, president of the Utah Museum Association, speaks at noon and 2 p.m. on the history and importance of comic books.
Guests dressed as comic book characters can participate in a 1 p.m. costume contest, with winners in divisions for children and adults. The prize is Aggie Ice Cream.
The museum is in Room 252 of USU’s Old Main building, at 500 N. 700 East. Regular exhibits are also open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and special activities are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekly for “Saturdays at the Museum” programs.
Admission is free.
