About request an edit to this page

In the museum's fifteen plus years of existence it has produced over 90 exhibitions and 20 publications, all focusing on the myriad of cartoon art. The museum's key function is to preserve, document, and exhibition this unique and accessible art form. Through traveling exhibitions and other exhibit related activities such as artist-in-residence/lecture series programs and outreach activities, the museum has taken cartoon art and used it to communicate cultural diversity in the community and the importance of self expression.
