There are quite a few exhibits opening or getting press coverage. Here they are in no particular order.
Pat Oliphant’s “Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons and Sculpture During the Bush Years” exhibit (I’ve blogged about it before) opens this Friday in Savanna Georgia. Pat will be on hand for the opening night.
For those in the New Orleans area, plan to take some time to visit “The Lines that Roar: Editorial Cartoons in the Age of Anxiety” exhibit featuring editorial cartoons by David Norwood of The Advocate in Baton Rouge, Steve Kelley of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and David Horsey of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
In Ohio, go visit the OSU Cartoon Research Library’s exhibit on Anne Mergen, one of the first female editorial cartoonists in America. She was hired as an editorial cartoonist in 1933 by the Miami Daily News and she remained the only female editorial cartoonist up until her retirement in 1956.
The Charles M. Schulz will open an exhibit entitled “The Language of Lines: How Cartoonists Communicate”. The exhibit runs February 2 through August 11, 2008 and is being co-curated by Brian Walker. There will be a members only reception on Saturday with Brian as the main speaker.
