Masterpieces from the Museum of Cartoon Art will showcase more than 100 original works celebrating the history of this unique art form in America.

Among the many items on display will be an early editorial cartoon by Thomas Nast, a spectacular Prince Valiant page by Hal Foster, a witty New Yorker gag by Peter Arno and classic Peanuts, Doonesbury and Calvin and Hobbes strips.
