Description

Masterpieces from the Museum of Cartoon Art will showcase more than 100 original works celebrating the history of this unique art form in America. Among the many items on display will be an early editorial cartoon by Thomas Nast, a spectacular Prince Valiant page by Hal Foster, a witty New Yorker gag by Peter Arno and classic Peanuts, Doonesbury and Calvin and Hobbes strips. Treasures from this rich and varied repository represent all of the cartoon genres, including comic strips, comic books, editorial cartoons, magazine cartoons, caricature, illustration and animation.

Brian Walker, a former director of the Museum of Cartoon Art, who has been responsible for more than 70 cartoon exhibitions, is serving as guest curator. All of the artwork is on loan from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at Ohio State University.
