Donkeys & Elephants: A Celebration of American Political Cartoons


On Saturday, January 12, 2013, I attended "Donkeys & Elephants: A Celebration of American Political Cartoons" at Studio Gallery in DC.

Here are some photos I took of the exhibit.







Here is more information on the exhibit from the press release:

In January, 2013 Studio Gallery will present a special exhibit which celebrates America’s editorial cartoonists and their work. The show focuses on donkeys and elephants, icons of partisan imagery since the 1800’s, and features more than 70 pieces. It includes some of the earliest cartoons by Thomas Nast portraying donkey and elephants, a special exhibit of some of Herb Block’s (Herblock) work, and over 50 contemporary cartoons from around the country and the world illustrating America’s political scene during 2012.  
 On Tuesday, January 22, from 6 – 8 PM, Kevin Kallaugher, editorial cartoonist for The Economist Magazine, will give a presentation titled “From Pen to Pixel: The Cartoons of Kal.”  His presentation will include a review of Kal’s cartoons on the Obama administration.  The presentation is open to the public.  
 Donkeys and Elephants is a timely and thematically colorful exhibit whose goal is to inform the public about the history of political cartoons and the important role they play in the media and in American democracy today. Editorial cartoonists have always played a critical role in America’s editorial pages. Today, in a technologic world that communicates increasingly through images, they have found a renewed importance in the online and social media sphere. 
The exhibit has been made possible with the generous support of the Herblock Foundation.   Studio Gallery will also feature a lecture by Kevin Kallagher, editorial cartoonist for The Economist magazine who has been described by The World Encyclopedia of Cartoons as "one the premier caricaturists of the (twentieth) century."

WHERE: Studio Gallery, 2108 R Street, NW, Washington, DC 20008
