Tom Richmond: The MAD Art of Caricature

The show of my MAD work is still hanging through October 4th at the Pittsburgh Toonseum, a museum of cartoon art located inside the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Toonseum curator Joe Wos recently send me a link to the following video posted on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette website about the exhibit:

The big news is that the Toonseum is going to be moving out of the Children’s Museum and into their own separate location in downtown Pittsburgh. The location is in the “Cultural District” across from the August Wilson center and into over 1000 square feet of space. That’s great as space is really limited at the Children’s Museum.

I do find it telling, howver,  that right after my artwork is hung in the Toonseum they are suddenly getting booted out. Hmmmm.

    Tom, that was a really nice video piece. Thanks for sharing, and congrats on the show. That is very impressive and obviously was quite the honor.

    What an honor! Great clip, and it looks like a great exhibit. Wish I could check it out…
