KAL cartoon exhibit opens up at Duke University

I know I’ve mentioned it in passing before, but Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher’s exhibit, “Mightier Than the Sword: The Satirical Pen of KAL” will be opening on November 7th at the Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy’s Rubenstein Hall on the Duke campus. The exhibit is free to the public and will stay at Duke through the rest of the academic year.

KAL’s drawings offer perspective on national and international political events, from the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of apartheid in South Africa to the 9/11 and Katrina disasters in the United States. The exhibit’s themes include American elections and politics, foreign affairs, 9/11 and the world in turmoil, and caricatures of leading figures such as Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. A larger version of the exhibit was displayed in Baltimore’s Walters Art Museum last year.
