Seeing Green: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turn 30 at the Cartoon Art Museum

Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo.

Yes, yes, these are the names of four Italian masters of Renaissance art, sure. Certainly, but more importantly, for many people in their 20s and 30s, these were the heroes of a generation.

Yes, these are the pizza-loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who are now, like a lot of Millennials, celebrating their 30th birthday (which, like only certain Millennials, came via genetic mutation) with a new retrospective book release in conjunction with a San Francisco-exclusive exhibition at the Cartoon Art Museum. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History is written by Andrew Farago, the curator of the Cartoon Art Museum and responsible for organizing the new exhibit.
