The Museums of New York - Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art
January 12, 2008
New York City, known as the cultural capital of the world, has nearly 100 museums that range in specialty from space travel to Asian History. These museums are often less popular than the more famous ones like the Museum of Modern Art or Museum of Natural History, but can offer just as much of a unique experience to visitors. Every week, we will feature one museum that we feel offers something distinctive to the New Yorker or tourist.
MoCCA offers the cartoon and comic book-lover a wide variety of exhibits, spanning from the past to present day. The museum provides a comprehensive view on the evolution of the comic and cartoon world. Currently, there are several special exhibits running through the museum. “Things That Go Bump…” explores the constant presence of monsters and villains, featuring drawings and analyses of antagonists ranging from Dracula to Hammerhead. For a modern take on the comic world, check out “Infinite Canvas: The Art of Webcomics,” which presents several of the most popular modern webcomics such as Penny Arcade, Scary Go Round, and many more.
