The Collection Gallery features displays of original cartoon and comic art held or owned by the ToonSeum. Some of the world’s most iconic characters are represented. A special emphasis is placed on the creative process and the artists behind the work. Representative works of the various media and genres are presented, including but not limited to: comic strips, animation, editorial cartoons, illustration, comic books, greeting cards, and gaming.

Mission:
The mission of The ToonSeum is to celebrate the art of cartooning. Our goal is to promote a deeper appreciation of cartoonists and their work through hands-on workshops, community outreach, cartoon-oriented educational programming and exhibitions of original cartoon art.
Results:
ToonSeum opened in October of 2007. We have since had two exhibitions, several guests cartoonists, and offered cartooning workshops. We continue to grow and the response has been wonderful.
