John Kelly MFA ’94

Filed under:

John Kelly MFA ’94 was named Executive Director of The ToonSeum, Pittsburgh's museum of comics and cartoon art. “The ToonSeum is one of only two museums in the US to be dedicated to the art and history of comic and cartoon art. I am very excited by this opportunity and hope to grow the presence of the museum, which is currently celebrating its 10th year of existence. Prior to this job, I had served as Senior Director of Communications at the National Basketball Association and Director of Communications at Columbia University. I am still writing for The Comics Journal and other places and am currently finishing up a book on the history of the comics of the Alternative Weekly Newspapers, which will be published by Fantagraphics Books in a year or so.”
