Official Press Release
On December 14, 1984, a group of cartoon art collectors and enthusiasts, led by Malcolm Whyte, established the Cartoon Art Museum, a non-profit, educational museum dedicated to the collection, preservation and display of original cartoon art in all its forms.
Today, 25 years later, the Cartoon Art Museum is still serving the San Francisco Bay Area and the artistic community through exhibitions, community outreach and public programming. A full and exciting roster of exhibitions and programs are being prepared for the coming year, and we are very thankful for all of the support and encouragement that we have received over the past 25 years, and look forward to continuing to fulfill our mission statement as it was conceived back in 1984.
In celebration of the past 25 years and a look ahead at the next quarter-century, the Cartoon Art Museum is commencing its 2009 Annual Fund Drive this week. For more information on how you can contribute to the museum's future, please visit our website, http://www.cartoonart.org, or contact our Acting Director, Summerlea Kashar at 415.CAR-TOON, ext. 300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
