Pointing Their Pens: Herblock and Fellow Cartoonists Confront the Issues

decoration21 March 2015|19 March 2016

Editorial cartoonists, like all Americans, do not always agree with one another. Issues on which the nation was particularly divided in the twentieth century — the Cold War, the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal - provide the framework for this exhibition which offers an extensive opportunity to experience the work of Herbert L. Block (1909–2001) — commonly known as Herblock — alongside the work of his contemporaries over the period of four decades and provides visual insights into key moments that shaped the United States in the twentieth century.
