During the upcoming AddamsFest, the inaugural celebration of its native son, the Town of Westfield will showcase the Charles Addams Art Exhibit, graciously on loan from the collection of the Tee & Charles Addams Foundation. Sure to be the crown jewel of the festival, the collection will feature 40 handpicked original drawings, cartoons and personal photographs -- with classic Addams Family pieces, as well as those brimming with hints of Westfield and highlighting Addams’ love of New York City.
