"Mana Contemporary in Pilsen will host a special opening reception for the new exhibit Erro: American Comics from 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The exhibit features a dozen colorful works from Icelandic artist Erro, known for translating American comic books and pop culture imagery into dizzying large-scale paintings.
