Toonseum Looking for Star Trek Original Art

000000000000-star-trek-50

Press Release:

The Toonseum, Pittsburgh’s Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, is currently in the process of organizing an exhibit of Star Trek original comic art. Art collectors have been instrumental in the success of prior exhibits at the ToonSeum, including last year’s Avengers: 50 Years of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the current Captain America: 75 Years of the Sentinel of Liberty exhibits, and the hope is that this will again prove true with Star Trek.

The Toonseum is thus reaching out to any collectors who might be willing and kind of enough to loan the Pittsburgh-based museum some amazing Star Trek pages to be placed on display to the public. The exhibit will run from October 28, 2016, until January 15, 2017.

If you think that you would like to loan some Star Trek art and/or have questions about the process, you can e-mail Board Member, Treasurer and Exhibit Curator Anthony Letizia (anthonyletizia@geekpittsburgh.com). Anthony would be happy to answer any questions you might have about transport, insurance, museum security and can provide references from collectors who have loaned the Toonseum art for previous exhibits. You can also check out the museum at the website.

Thank you for your consideration.
