From the earliest days of our nation, political cartoons appeared as powerful tools of expression for both the powerful and powerless. 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. Located in the Ansary Gallery of American History, the exhbit will be on display through January 5, 2020.
