Editorial cartooning exhibit opens at Duke University

Chris Lamb author of “Drawn to Extremes: The Use and Abuse of Editorial Cartoons in the United States” will be the guest speaker to open a new editorial cartooning exhibit at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in Durham, NC. The exhibit explores “the significance and impact of political caricature by comparing images from the pastâ??canonical works by Daumier and his contemporaries featuring French king Louis-Philippe (1830-1848) with work produced during the tenure of U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush (1993-2008).”

Artwork on display include Garry Trudeau, Steve Bell, Dwayne Powell, Gerald Scarfe, Steve Brodner, Jeff Danziger and Pat Oliphant.

Exhibit runs through May 16, 2010. For more information visit their website.

Those are liberals, not “extreme leftists.”

As far as I know, there isn’t an extreme left cartoonist working in the United States today.

It wouldn’t be allowed.

Hello,
Will there be any examples of 3 x Pulitzer Prize winner Rollin Kirby shown at the Exhibit?
