{pursuit of Pittsburgh} The ToonSeum (and a giveaway!)


It’s difficult to come back to blog, after being so uninspired to write for so long… GOOD THING I HAVE A GIVEAWAY.

Spiderman: my HERO (and you can be a superhero too... READ ON!)

If you haven’t heard the news, Pittsburgh’s own ToonSeum announced that it is expanding their current space. I love this place so much, and I want to help them with their goals of bringing the fun of cartoons and comics (and its characters and artists) to young and old residents and visitors alike. Seriously, this museum is such an amazing thing to have right in our downtown – show your continued support by donating to their kickstarter program (there’s different levels, with awesome invites to donor-only events as part of the deal if you pledge at least $100). This expansion means more of their special collection can be on display, on a more permanent basis. Plus, more space for classes, workshops and community programming — and I LOVE the idea of a reading courtyard.

Again (for those who skimmed) here’s the ToonSeum’s BE A REAL SUPERHERO kickstarter info.
Expansion News via Post Gazette and PopCity
Too Soon? A Cartoon Retrospective of 9/11 (exhibit runs through September 25)
Geek Night TV in September – five hours of the most awesome geeky television — and a little trivia. Ahem, alcohol available for guests over 21. *wink*

Up for grabs are a handful of adult passes for admission to the ToonSeum (and a couple other small, fun things). This “package” contains two passes that expire at the end of September 2011 (because I REALLY want you to check out this 9/11 exhibit) and a four-pack that expire in December 2011.

I’ve got two (2) prize packs to give away, which means I’ll pick two commenters at random, with a total of six free admission passes each.
I’ll pick my winners this Friday, September 9 before EOD.
It kinda helps if you’re in Pittsburgh, but if you intend to travel here (welcome!): BY ALL MEANS, enter!

ToonSeum is located at 945 Liberty Ave in downtown Pittsburgh. Follow them on Facebook for updated event info!

Disclaimer: The ToonSeum graciously donated a handful of passes to me over the course of a few events, the most recently being Bloggers Blast II — where I won a really sweet FlipCam in a random raffle drawing (I’m still learning to use it AND edit video properly) donated in coordination with Pittsburgh on Video.
