Fans and collectors will have an opportunity to view and purchase original artwork actually used in making The Simpsons. Hundreds of pieces of art, including animator's drawings, hand-painted cels, and extremely rare storyboards, model sheets and backgrounds will be on display.

With his many years of work on The Simpsons, as well as King of the Hill and Futurama, Archer offers a wealth of insight and fascinating behind-the-scenes stories of the making of The Simpsons.
