On December 22nd the ToonSeum, a museum with character, celebrates one of Pittsburgh’s most beloved “characters” with a visit from filmmaker Rick Sebak!
Guests will have the opportunity to meet Rick Sebak as well as purchase signed copies of his newest documentary “25 Things I Like About Pittsburgh.”
“25 Things I Like About Pittsburgh” looks at 25 things he likes about Pittsburgh – not his top 25, just 25 aspects of living here that surprise and delight him and make him happy to be a Pittsburgher. The ToonSeum is proud to be one of those 25 things.
The ToonSeum will also be offering a special limited edition print featuring Rick Sebak as drawn by Rob Rogers.
“The ToonSeum is known as a museum with character.” Said ToonSeum Executive Director Joe Wos. “and while normally we celebrate cartoon characters, we cannot think of an individual who defines character in all it’s definitions better than Rick Sebak.”
Rick will be on hand at the ToonSeum from 11am-1pm on Saturday, December 22nd. A limited number of collectible posters from “25 Things” as well as other prizes will be raffled off throughout the afternoon.
The ToonSeum is located at 945 Liberty Avenue, in downtown Pittsburgh
