Cartoon Museum Benefit at Pixar


San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum is holding its fourth annual fundraiser at Pixar Animation Studios next Saturday. Tickets are $200. a piece, a bit steep but all the money goes to keeping the Museum alive. Animation art is a large part what the museum preserves and celebrates. In fact, a Mary Blair retrospective featuring rare concept art, advertising illustrations and children’s book illustrations will be opening in late October and run through March 2008.

At next Saturday’s fundraiser Pixar’s Mark Andrews (Story Supervisor), Dylan Brown (Supervising Animator)and Sharon Calahan (Director of Photography) will be guest speakers. A premiere screening of a new short, Our Friend the Rat, with in person commentary by director Jim Capobianco, will highlight the evening presentation in the main theatre. For more info on the Pixar event, consult the Cartoon Art Museum website.

  • I always stop in at the CAM whenever I’m in SF. It’s a lovely place. Small, but the stuff on the walls is always interesting and rotating.

    But I MUST get to the Mary Blair one somehow!!

  • Yeah it is a bit steep and if I had the money I would definitely contribute:) I just visited the Cartoon Art Museum today for the first time! Definitely one of the Bay Area’s treasures! I especially loved the Edward Gorey exhibit currently showing!

  • I seriously will make a trip to see that Mary Blair exhibit once it’s open. Road trip to San Fran! Anyone?

  • I work down the street from the CAM and I am a member there. Decided to get in on the Pixar action and bought myself a ticket to support the museum – anyone else going?
