Photos from Max's Albert Lea Art Show

Max Konrardy is one of the coolest guys I know. Not only is he an amazing Flash animator and graphic novelist, he recently took a break from the corporate world to help a friend restore and rehabilitate Albert Lea's famous old theatre, which has fallen into disrepair.

On top of all that he has curated his first gallery show, "Panel, Line and Letter: Black and White Selections from Modern Midwest Comics," which opened tonight. It was a great excuse to travel the 1 1/2 hours to Albert Lea from Minneapolis to see Max in his new environs, look at some great original comics, and check out this spooky old theatre I've been hearing about for months.

The gallery show -- which is held in the same building as the historic theatre -- runs through August 30th, so you still have time to check it out if you missed the opening. Also, the theatre restoration and rehabilitation Max is working on has passion, creativity, and motivation -- but is hurting for funds. You can check out the renovation site here and, if you want, throw some cash Max's way.

Holy cram-cram. I am from Albert Lea. Glad that someone is saving the downtown buildings, but at the end of the day -- it is Albert Lea. I guess I'll stop in there next time I'm visiting family.
