About the exhibit

This exhibit — open March 27 through August 14, 2020 at Elmer L. Andersen Library — features the work of cartoonists, illustrators, and graphic artists who unabashedly address political topics relevant to the concerns of the people. Materials include original sketches, various graphic ephemera, and rare historical newspapers and magazines from the University Libraries’ special collections.

A poster display — The Satirical and Political Graphics of Modern Times, by Spanish cartoonist and illustrator Miguel Brieva — accompanies the exhibit. This display presents prominent artists whose work best represents the diverse styles of graphic art across different political and historical eras and from various nations.
