WHO:

 

The ToonSeum- The ToonSeum is Pittsburgh's museum of Comic and Cartoon art located in the

 

Cultural District, Downtown. One of only three such museums in the country, the mission of the

 

ToonSeum is to celebrate the art of cartooning. Our goal is to promote a deeper appreciation of the

 

cartoonists and their work through hands-on workshops, community outreach, cartoon-oriented

 

educational programming, and exhibitions of original cartoon art.

 

 

 

WHAT:

 

Ka-Blam! is our annual fundraiser supporting the ToonSeum. This past year, Pittsburgh took center

this year's theme of "Gotham Nights". At the ToonSeum, our exhibit "Pittsburgh as Gotham" will be on

 

display, highlighting all of our local ties to the "Batman" legacy, both on the big and small screens. Our

 

fundraiser will play off of this theme, highlighting all of Pittsburgh's ties to the movie industry over the

 

years, with a special focus on the Batman franchise.
