Ticonderoga Cartoon Museum Closing

Upstate New York's Ticonderoga Cartoon Museum is apparently closing its doors at the end of August, a local report says. Museum director Stan Burdick is donating his 700-piece collection to Pittsburgh's Toonseum in September. The museum has been running the basement of a local community building for six years, and before that was in another town's hall for six years. The article claims the collection includes art by Neal Adams and Frank Frazetta, although I'm not sure from looking at pictures if that means originals or not; I would assume it does. The addition of the Burdick collection will push the Pittsburgh group's holdings over the 3000 mark.
