January Public Art Window
January’s Public Art Window at Gallery Z features a display by the TempleCon multi-genre gaming convention of Providence, highlighting the convention’s charity raffle of steampunk costuming in order to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. In the CBLDF’s own words: “The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund was founded in 1986 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of First Amendment rights for members of the comics community… The CBLDF’s guiding principle is that comics should be accorded the same constitutional rights as literature, film, or any other form of expression.” Since attacks on the First Amendment rights of members of the comics community often go hand-in-hand with similar attacks against members of the gaming community, helping the CBLDF in their work to safeguard freedom of expression is a strong priority for the TempleCon staff and membership.
Now in its third year, TempleCon is an annual event, coming to the Providence Biltmore Hotel on the weekend of February 1st, through 3rd, 2008. The convention hosts a variety of casual and competitive games in a social setting, attracting both national and international competitors to play board games, role-playing games, video games, card games, and table-top miniatures games. TempleCon has a strong committment to giving back to the community through its support of charitable organizations that are of interest to its members.
