Located at a highly visible location along High Street and adjacent to the Wexner Center for the Arts, the historic Sullivant Hall is in dire need of repair. The planned renovation will provide 40,000 gross square feet of space for the new Cartoon Library and Museum that will include a spacious reading room for researchers, three museum-quality galleries, and expanded storage with state-of-the-art environmental and security controls. A dedicated ground-level entry will allow for easy access to the new facility. The addition of exhibition galleries dedicated to cartoon art will facilitate public display of the Library’s extraordinary collection. Total renovation costs are estimated at $20.6 million.
To help raise the necessary funds, Charles Schulz’s widow, Jean (who has already given $1 million of her own money) is declaring she will match every dollar donated to the museum, up to $2.5 million. So don’t delay, head over here and send a few bucks to the OSU.
