The Museum of the City of New York has launched the “Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs” exhibit. Chast has become well-known as a staff cartoonist for The New Yorker and the creator of the autobiographical graphic novel, Can’t We talk About Something More Pleasant?

According to the organization’s website, the curators collected more than 200 of Chast’s works for this program. Visitors will also see a painting called the “Subway Sofa.”

Chast made “Subway Sofa” for the purpose of welcoming museum guests to this art show; the video embedded above features her creation process. The closing date has been scheduled for Oct. 9.
