Indiana museum honors its own cartoonists

The Scott County Heritage Center and Museum in Scottsburg Indiana is hosting an exhibit of cartoons from cartoonists, like Jim Davis, who call Indiana their home.

In addition to Davis, a native of Muncie, the exhibit showcases cartoonists such as Allen Saunders, a Boone County native and Wabash College alumnus who revamped “Mary Worth”; and Henry Jackson Lewis, a cartoonist for the old Indianapolis Freeman newspaper whom some called the first black political cartoonist, according to the exhibit.

Nineteen cartoonists are profiled, including John T. McCutcheon, a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune in the early to mid-1900s.

Admission is free. Visit the link above to get more information.
