Complain about the Annie awards all you want – Asifa-Hollywood is a great organization that does much good to promote and preserve the cause of animation.Case in point, last week I posted an urgent plea from Richard Huemer (son of animator Dick Huemer) about a hand painted mural in the former Huemer home that was about to be demolished. On Saturday Asifa Hollywood members, led by organization president Antran Manoogian, helped preserve those walls from the Huemer home. Antran was able to negotiate with the demolition company to save two bedroom walls which featured original artwork by Huemer of classic Disney characters. The artwork is now being kept at a temporary storage location. See more photos here. Thanks to Antran and all the volunteers that helped make this happen.
