- Windows On Death Row: Art from Inside and Outside the Prison Walls November 5, 2016 - March 12, 2017
In Death Penalty We Trust by Patrick Chappatte
Windows on Death Row features over 70 works of art by famous American political cartoonists, as well as from a more unlikely source, death row inmates. Using art as a tool for social awareness, this exhibition opens a window into an often hidden part of the ongoing conversation about capital punishment – exploring the system through the eyes of the incarcerated. At a moment when our country is becoming ever more polarized regarding racial injustice and economic inequality, the questions that this exhibition raises could not be more timely. This traveling exhibit is presented by Patrick Chappatte, Anne-Frédérique Widmann, and Anne Hromadka.

- Good Grief! Children and Comics June 4, 2016 - October 23, 2016
Nancy (detail) by Ernie Bushmiller
Young people have a long, rich, and complicated history with comics in the United States. Many of the most beloved comic strip characters have been children. Similarly, boys and girls have also constituted one of the primary readerships of, as well as target audiences for, this artistic form. Comics and children just go together, like Nancy and Sluggo, Archie and Jughead, or Calvin and Hobbes.
Good Grief! Children and Comics examines the history, role and tensions of child characters in comic strips and comic books. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 > >>
