An exhibition dedicated to Archie and his Riverdale gang will be presented for the first time to the Greek public at the Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas Gallery of the Hellenic American Union. As part of Comicdom Con Athens 2019, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and other popular characters come alive before the visitor’s eyes through the display of original pages and memorabilia sourced from the collections of the Cartoon Art Museum and Archie Publishing Co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit respectively.
The lives of Archie and his friends have always reflected important social, historic and cultural changes, from their first appearance in 1941 to their 2017 revival in the TV series "Riverdale". But it is friendship and teenage life that has always taken center stage.
The exhibition “Archie: Welcome to Riverdale” aspires to introduce, or re-introduce, the public to an iconic series of comic books that made history and is still both relevant and disruptive, reminding us of the power of a good story and a cast of authentic characters.
