The Cartoon Art Museum, the only museum in the western United States dedicated to all forms of cartoons and comics, is delighted to announce its second annual Family Fun Day mini-conference and benefit at Pixar Animation Studios on Saturday, October 11, 2008. From Pixar’s inception in 1986 with the premiere of its iconic short film, Luxo Jr., to the studio’s latest full-length feature, Disney*Pixar’s WALL·E, attendees will get a hands-on, insiders’ perspective on the mastery behind these computer animated creations.

This special afternoon starts with open galleries at Pixar's Emeryville campus. Guests from age eight to 18 will gain access to a stunning gallery exhibition featuring the pre-production artwork from WALL·E, as well as other fine artwork by Pixar employees. Guests will then be escorted into Pixar's state-of-the-art 235-seat theater to be inspired by Pixar's unique movie-making process and motivated to create their own cartoons. After the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to get creative in exclusive workshops led by Pixar employees. These workshops will be followed by an exclusive screening of Pixar shorts.

This event is expected to sell out quickly and there are only a limited number of seats available. Cartoon Art Museum members can purchase tickets for the reduced rate of $90, while the non-member rate is $125. Save money and become a member of the Cartoon Art Museum today!
