Cartoons w/Deitch at MoCCA Thursday!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Kim Deitch 29 Oct 2008 7:38 PM

  

Thursday night at NYC's MoCCA MuseumKim Deitch will host a Cartoon Movie Night featuring rarely seen animated cartoons from the 1920s and 1930s hand-picked for the occasion from Deitch's own personal collection. This period of animation inspired Deitch's signature character Waldo the Cat and is the subject of his acclaimed graphic novel The Boulevard of Broken Dreams, which is featured in the ongoing Deitch exhibit currently on display at MoCCA. As a special Halloween treat, MoCCA will also display for one night only selected specimens from Deitch and spouse Pam Butler's extensive collection of antique toy cats. The blurring of fact, fiction and autobiography in Deitch's work is a major focus of Kim Deitch: A Retrospective, and this display will present a rare opportunity to see the historical artifacts that motivate the fictional narrative in Deitch's graphic novel Alias the Cat.

The event is part of a regularly scheduled series of "MoCCA Thursdays" events at the Museum. The Deitch exhibit runs through December 5, 2008.

MoCCA is located at 594 Broadway, Suite 401 (between Houston & Prince), New York, NY 10012 • Phone: 212 254-3511
