Exhibit Opens: Wit and Humor: American Political Cartoons

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum

Using symbols, imagery, and humor, cartoonists have played a special role in helping average Americans make sense of tumultuous and complex events we experience in our increasingly connected world. Featuring original artworks and artifacts, including collections from the Library of Congress, Wit and Humor will show how cartoons have changed since the early days of the Republic. This exhibit will highlight important cartoons from artists regarded as giants in their field, like Thomas Nast and Patrick Oliphant.
