This past weekend we were thrilled to attend the opening of the brand-new Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. In recognition of his continuing efforts to preserve and display original cartoon art by creating the Museum of Cartoon Art (later the International Museum of Cartoon Art), and, later, donating the vast collection to Ohio State, Mort was honored by having a gallery named after him. I would encourage anyone with an interest in cartoon art and, especially, those who may not consider cartoons as art, to visit this wonderful facility. The current exhibit, “Substance and Shadow”, curated by my brother Brian, is truly mind-blowing. The art rivals anything seen in any other gallery and many pieces have true historical importance. We are truly honored to have some of our pieces on display.
