IPTC INFO
CaptionIn 1984 a group of cartoon art enthusiasts began organizing exhibitions by using art work from their own collections. For several years the Cartoon Art Museum was a "museum without walls" setting up shows in local museums and corporate spaces. In 1987 with an endowment from Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz the museum established residence in the heart of San Francisco's new vibrant art center Yerba Buena Gardens. .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. .The Cartoon Art Museum is the only museum in the United States dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of cartoon art in all its forms. This unique institution houses approximately 6 000 original pieces in its permanent collection; a complete volume research/library facility is located on the museum's premises. In addition to seven major exhibitions a year the museum has a classroom for cartoon art and a bookstore.
