SF Heart comic art.

Cartoon Art Museum

Great comic classic art from Archie to DC comics. There is a sign before entering that warns that you cannot take photos or video in the museum, but they allowed me to take a photo of their Heart of San Francisco, near where you can buy admission tickets.

[Monica McCormick, 04/01/2012]

Hearts of San Francisco was a community art project involving 130 sculptures scattered around town. The one at the Cartoon Art Museum is a salute to Beach Blanket Babylon, a musical revue featuring crazy giant hats that sometimes support skyscrapers.
