Beginning June 26, 2004, the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, CA will house a new exhibition, "Raggedy Ann and Friends: The Art of Johnny Gruelle." The exhibition will include a rare original editorial cartoon by Gruelle; samples of his comic strips Mr. Twee Deedle, Jack the Giant Killer, and Brutus; original magazine and newspaper illustrations; and original drawings and paintings from his wonderful children's book illustrations. Raggedy Ann and Friends will also present vintage dolls, toys, animation art and ephemera that featured Gruelle's creations.
As part of the museum's commitment to promoting a greater appreciation of art through interactive outreach programs, the Cartoon Art Museum will host "Raggedy Ann and Friends: Kids Day!" in conjunction with "Raggedy Ann and
Friends: The Art of Johnny Gruelle." The event is happening twice, July 29, 2004 and August 15, 2004, from 11:30am-4:00pm. The day encompasses many activities designed to teach children and families about the nostalgia, history and wonder of Raggedy Ann.
