After a lengthy search, the Cartoon Art Museum finally has a new home. The museum will move into an 8000-square-foot space at 781 Beach Street in San Francisco. The new venue will provide space for a gallery, classroom, bookstore, and library. The new museum location won’t open until 2017, so in the meantime, the Cartoon Art Museum will continue to produce comic art focused events around the city.
The new location will allow the Cartoon Art Museum to continue its core mission of “the preservation and exhibition of cartoon art in all its forms.” The organization has more than 7,000 pieces of original art in its collection that, unfortunately, has been squirreled away out of the public eye during the search for a new space.
