ToonSeum Gallery to open in Pittsburgh

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh will open up the ToonSeum Gallery this October that will feature exhibits of cartoon art from comic books, comic strips, illustrations, editorial cartooning and animation. The gallery’s first exhibit is entitled “From Illustration to Animation: Picture Books Come Alive Through the Art of Animation” and opens up in October of this year.

The ToonSeum is the brainchild of Joe Wos, a performing cartoonist that works with the Children’s Museum as well as tours the country doing a story-telling program called “Once Upon a Toon.” He was the first resident cartoonist at the Charles M. Schulz Museum.

“The Pittsburgh Children’s Museum is a great location for this ToonSeum Gallery. It is my goal to create an inviting and educational gallery experience that children and adults will enjoy. Cartoons are one of the world’s most popular artforms, and I hope this ToonSeum Gallery will grow into a full-fledged museum of cartoon arts here in Pittsburgh,” Wos said.
