    Charles M. Schulz "Sparky Award" Presented to Carl Barks (Cartoon Art Museum, 1999). The Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco opened in 1984. It has a permanent endowment fund that was established by the late Charles Schulz. The museum, which houses over 7,000 pieces of comic and animation art, established the "Sparky Award" in 1998. This Lifetime Achievement Award was created for "People who embody the talent, innovation and humanity of Charles Schulz." This is a rare Bronze Charles M. Schulz Award that was presented to Carl Barks in 1999. Great Bronze image of Snoopy at the inkwell with pen. A Charles Schulz signature is incised into the award. The plaque reads, "The Cartoon Art Museum of San Francisco presents to Carl Barks The 1999 Charles Schulz Award." We have not seen any of these awards come to market, not to mention one given to The Good Duck Artist, Carl Barks (1901 - 2000). Bronze statue is 10" high on a marble base measuring 6.5" x 5". Very Good condition.
