US Museum Picks Designer

Tom Spurgeon links to a story about Mort Walker's National Cartoon Museum, located in the Empire State Building, New York City. The museum has hired a major design firm, Ralph Appelbaum Associates, to design its space.

Interesting news for those of us pondering the feasability of comics-related museums worldwide. According to Spurgeon, "Depending on how you look at these things, this is either good news that the museum will be handled in such a first class manner or troubling news that the NCM is overreaching, as seems to have happened in previous locations."
