Riverside Art Museum

Free to museum members.

Imagine a Riverside where the fantastical and the ordinary intersect. A Riverside where everyday heroes like the staff of the Riverside Art Museum—Bethany, Katie, Ai, Caryn, and Drew—and heroic Speedateers and Rangerineers work together to save humanity through peace, compassion, and the arts. This is Sebraé Harris’s Riverside, as depicted in his debut manga The Vermillion Speedateer. Join us as we celebrate Harris—homegrown local author, illustrator, and entrepreneur, with a global vision and keen artistic sensibility.

The Vermillion Speedateer is the product of Harris’ years of artistic development and coming of age in the City of Riverside in a supportive artistic environment. Publication of The Vermillion Speedateer is made possible through a generous gift from The Littleworth Scholarship Fund of the Riverside Art Museum.
