Corny Cole memorial

A public memorial service has been set up for Corny Cole, who passed away last month, on August 8.

The Animation Guild had already scheduled an open-to-the-public Fine Art of Corny Cole exhibit and reception for Friday, October 7 at 6 pm. However, an official memorial event has been added for Sunday, October 9, from noon to 6pm in the Guild’s meeting room on the second floor. Both these events will be held at The Animation Guild building, at 1105 N. Hollywood Way, in Burbank, CA.

For the Sunday memorial, attendees are encouraged to bring Corny Cole artwork to display or any video of his work, or of him, on DVD. At 1pm Tom Sito will introduce several friends and guest speakers. Anyone who has a Corny story to share is invited to do so. Contact Sito at tom (at) tomsito (dot) com so he can add you to the list and introduce you. Refreshments will be served.

    Corny happened to be picked as my secret Santa one year. And what does he give me? A copy of his portfolio plus one original piece. The best gift EVER. It’s a fantastic idea to share Corny’s art on that specific Sunday but I am interested in keeping Corny’s legacy alive not just for those of us who have crossed paths with him but all the less fortunate who didn’t have that opportunity. It would be great to have a Corny wiki page and show case his amazing talent and the incredible man that he was.

  • I might have a few things to bring w/. Thanks for the heads up Jerry.
