Suppose there were an exhibition about the cartoon series that have been broadcast since 1950. Would the following be an example of a dangling modifier?

Starting in 1950 with Atomic Kitten, visitors explore several collections of art devoted each cartoon series.

I'd appreciate your help.

  • "devoted to each" is more contemporary. "devoted each" is grammatical but rather 19th century. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 17 '18 at 13:19

    And the visitors would "start with" not "in". Starting with Atomic Kitten from 1950, visitors explore... – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 17 '18 at 13:22
  • And of course each here assumes you've already mentioned these series in an earlier sentence not included in your quoted snippet. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 17 '18 at 13:26
  • Does "Starting with Aromic Kitten from 1950" modify "visitors" or "several collections of art"? – Apollyon Nov 17 '18 at 13:36
  • It "modifies" the main clause in its entirety. I would say that it "attends" the main clause. You can move it to the end of the sentence if you like. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 17 '18 at 13:39
