The tribute will highlight Avery’s and Maltese’s cartoons; recorded interviews with Joe Adamson will also be played. A panel including Brenda Maltese Moulthrop, Martha Sigall, Jerry Eisenberg and Don Jurwich will also be on hand.

The event will be held at the Linwood Dunn Theater at the Academy’s Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study in Hollywood.
