On a daily basis, editorial cartoonists deliver biting social commentary made palatable through amusing and well-crafted illustration. Lines with Power and Purpose: Editorial Cartoons features original editorial cartoons from the nation’s great metropolitan newspapers during the Golden Age of print journalism. Included in the mix are six Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonists, each demonstrating the theme of political commentary through editorial illustrations and addressing issues from the first half of the twentieth century. The tour will also feature selections from influential cartoonists Clifford Baldowski, known as “Baldy" and Gene Basset. Both collections are housed at the Russell Library.

This traveling exhibition was developed by Exhibits U.S.A., a national division of the Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.  

Join the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies with a virtual tour of the exhibit on Thursday, September 23rd at 2:00 p.m. The event will be live-streamed on our Facebook page. This event is free and open to the public.
