Political cartoons are entertaining art forms that portray public figures and current events in humorous yet thought-provoking ways. With the current use of memes, are political cartoons a dying art? How will they stay relevant in the future? Join us for a fascinating look at the history and evolution of political cartoons as a genre.
British political cartoon historian Tim Benson, Chicago Tribune’s editorial cartoonist Scott Stantis, and local avid political art collector Anthony Mourek will be at Loyola’s downtown campus, to engage in a lively discussion. Friends of the University Libraries Advisory Board member Mariam Pera (BA ’10, MPP ’19) will moderate the panel discussion.
