The Toy and Action Figure Museum opened last Saturday (Oct. 15) in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. Within the museum is a special display called the Oklahoma Cartoonists Collection, featuring artwork of cartoonists from Oklahoma as well as artists associated with Oklahoma’s comics writers. This collection contains original comics pages and strip artwork, photocopies of artwork, and clipped newspaper strips. (Note: all the artwork, including photocopies, was donated by the artists or their respective estates.) The display is in a temporary form so that it could be viewed on the museum’s opening day. The display’s “curator”, Michael Vance, asked me for advice in creating the permanent display, but beyond suggesting archival materials and a short list of where to obtain them, I’m really out of my element. So I thought I would go the Source of Knowledge of All Things Comics and contact CBG. In a nutshell: If you were going to display all this artwork for public view, from originals to newsprint, how would you do it? Limitations are wall space and, currently, a budget. But as this is a display intended to grow over time, the hope is that grants and contributions will cover costs. I will pass along any/all suggestions to my friend, Michael Vance.
