Media Release — The Cartoon Art Museum is celebrating and saying farewell to one of our most popular exhibits, “What, Me Worry?: 60 Years of MAD Magazine”, which ends September 16th.
Throw on that snappy, Dapper Don, vintage early 60’s attire and join us for live music, celebrity bartenders serving up MADhattans and pose for local comic artists sketching attendees in the 60’s style of vintage print ads. Also- those MAD hatters, San Francisco’s own Goorin Brothers Hats will be on hand with a customized ‘pop-up’ shop. Complete your look with something from these bold hat makers. A portion of the sales will benefit the museum.
