Andrew Farago, curator of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Fransisco, just spilled the beans on Facebook about their upcoming MAD show:
Love MAD? Our next exhibition is going to be the greatest collection of MAD art ever assembled, going all the way back to MAD #1. Kurtzman covers! Elder splash pages! Aragones! Berg! Richmond! Viviano! Mingo! Drucker! Davis! Jaffee! Martin! Get yourself to San Francisco between April and September, or kick yourself later!
-Andrew Farago, The Cartoon Art Museum
I’ve known this was coming for some time, as Andrew has been gathering pieces from various MAD artists for months. I sent him a couple of splash pages from some movie parodies I did, plus the pencil roughs and prints of the finished colored art, but I don’t know how much will end up in the exhibit. No other details yet on the show but they will be announced shortly. I know the show will run from sometime in April through the summer, but no exact dates. I will definitely have to plan a trip to San Fransisco to check it out!
I’ll post more details as they become available.
UPDATE– Andrew tells me the exhibit dates are April 21st through September 16th. See his comment below for details on some of the work that will be part of the show!
