Cartoonist Charles “Chas” Addams (1912-1988) was known for his darkly humorous and eccentric characters. The creator of “The Addams Family,” his work appeared frequently in The New Yorker from the mid 1930s through the 1980s, inspiring television and film spin-offs. H. Kevin Miserocchi, Director of the Sagaponack-based Tee & Charles Addams Foundation—and a close friend of Addams and his wife Tee—leads this visual presentation of Addams’ work and life, featuring photos of the artist and his residence.



H. Kevin Miserocchi  |  As executive director of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation, H. Kevin Miserocchi oversees its mission to educate the public about the oeuvre of Charles Addams through worldwide exhibition of his art, as well as by means of educational programs and publications in maintenance of the intellectual properties associated with his work that the Foundation wholly possesses. He lives within and actively oversees the Addams estate in Sagaponack that was deeded to the Foundation to be managed as a tribute to his art and as a wildlife preserve.
