The Museum’s Hearst Hall of Fame.
The L.A. Times reports that the National Cartoon Museum has taken up a 14,000-square-foot, three-story space at the bottom of the Empire State Building.
Ralph Applebaum Associates is doing the design for the museum, which focuses on newspaper comic strips; Mr. Walker’s father drew the Beetle Bailey cartoons.
For now, according to the Museum’s Web site, “our collections are being housed at an atmospherically controlled secure storage facility located in Stamford, Connecticut.”
Opening is slated for next year.
