Visit the New Toonseum

The Toonseum is currently located within the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (of course). This November, however, they will be moving to their new “storefront digs” at 945 Liberty Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh (across from the August Wilson Center). The move will give the Toonseum much more room, and allow them to display a much wider variety of cartoon art — including material which might not be appropriate for showing at a children’s museum.

Here’s the Toonseum’s mission statement, from their web site: “The mission of the ToonSeum is to celebrate the art of cartooning. Our goal is to promote a deeper appreciation of the cartoonists and their work through hands-on workshops, community outreach, cartoon-oriented educational programming, and exhibitions of original cartoon art.” We like it. Next time you’re in town — like, say, for Anthrocon — why not drop on in?
