The Museum Kartun Indonesia or Indonesian Cartoon Museum has opened at Sunset Road No.85 in Kuta. The Museum, which was formally opened on March 13, 2008, is the first facility of its kind in Southeast Asia.
At the museum over 600 works of art by Indonesia's leading cartoonists and caricaturists are now on display.
Established by the Association of Indonesian Cartoonists (PAKARTI) will display works taken from the pages of Indonesian newspapers and magazines, featuring such well-know artists as Sidharta, Dwi Koen, Poernomo, and Kokang.
One of the founders of the Museum, 85-year-old Adi Jangkrik, said at the opening: 'We hope this museum is able to become a motivator for our cartoonists, preventing them from becoming pessimists. Let's create not only for ourselves but also for all the people."
