If you have budding little artists and storytellers in your family, then you might just want to take them along to the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, located at the Society of Illustrators.
There are a number of collections, all of which cover a range of comics and cartoons so kids can see that cartoons aren’t just what they watch on television!
From animations, anime, comic strips, illustrations, editorials, graphics novels….there is a whole range of amazing creatives works to be explored.
At the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, there is a permanent collection which is seen to be one of the most comprehensive collections in the entire WORLD when it comes to this genre. That’s pretty impressive!
There are nearly 2,000 works by some of the most talented artists in American illustration, and the collection is rotated quarterly so when you keep coming back you’ll be sure to see something new.
The museum of course also have a number of exhibits which are temporary, so make sure you keep an eye out for what’s on so you make sure you don’t miss it!
Does the museum make you feel creative? Lucky they hold fun events such as sketch nights, where you can put that creativity down on paper and see what you can come up with. You might surprise yourself!
Be inspired, and give kids something unique when they ask if they can look at comic books or watch cartoons. It’s a fun learning experience in New York City!
