Cartoon Art Museum

Monday, August 28th, 2006

If you are ever in San Francisco, make sure to pay a visit to the Cartoon Art Museum! I stumbled upon a sign for one of their special events in the street, and I was surprised since I had never heard of it.

They have over 6,000 original art pieces, and a whole section devoted to animation with many storyboards, original hand painted cells and backgrounds. They had wonderful cells from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Alladin, and many Hannah Barbera cells as well and even some archival prints of Gertie the Dinosaur.

They are located on 655 Mission street, one block away from the Metreon, in between Montgomery and 3rd street. It is not easy to find, but you have to look out for their yellow banner. It is a traditional gallery space, set behind their bookstore in the front. They also lead cartoon camps for kids.

Blanton Website

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

Snert made the new webpage for the Blanton Museum, in Austin, Texas, 508 accessible!

We gave the homepage a new, templated structure, so that the images and the Alt text could be easily changed in an external text file, when the expositions in the museum change.
