The Macabre Charm of Charles Addams

Cerimon House was honored to present this darkly humorous primer on the life of the American cartoonist Charles Addams – in a lecture by the dapper Kevin Miserocchi, Executive Director of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation,sharing tales of Addams’ life and inspired artistic journey.

Whether you waited in anticipation for each week’s New Yorker to hit the stands, or loved the 1960’s television series, Addams helped us to wink-at the 20th-century madness. And in 2015, we hosted the West Coast Premiere art exhibit Charles Addams: Family and Friends, featuring 52 original pen & ink illustrations.

Two full-houses of Addams devotees joined us for this special event in both October and December 2015.

With thanks to our terrific community sponsors: Pomegranate, SET, Concordia Neighborhood Association, Concordia University, and KBOO Community Radio.
