The Art of 'Secret of Kells' and 'Song Of the Sea' Exhibition to Open at San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum

Song Of The Sea might not have won the Oscar on Sunday, but it won an awful lot of hearts along the way. Fans in California are about to get the chance to see original concept art from both Tomm Moore's sophomore feature and his similarly Oscar-nominated d├ębut Secret Of Kells,-which he co-directed with Nora TwomeyCartoon Saloon has teamed up with the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco to give people a rare chance to see original and digital concept art from the two films, and will run from February 21st to June 21st 2015.

Having had a couple of nights to recover from his Oscar night excitement, Tomm Moore himself will be in town to open the exhibition. The event will run between 5 and 8pm on Wednesday February 21st. Copies of the Secret of Kells artbook will be available at the event and Moore will be on hand to sign and personalise books on the night. This will be an unmissable event for fans of the studio who happen to be in the area.

The Cartoon Art Museum is located in San Fran's Mission St, and has been hosting a wide range of comic, animation and graphic art for more than 25 years. Its current venue was opened thanks to an endowment from the legendary Cartoonist Charles M. Schulz in 1987, and has been celebrating the work of various cartoonists, animators and artists ever since.
