A unique collection featuring political cartoons by David Horsey, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist, and twin exhibit of historical and contemporary U.S. political cartoons entitled “Join, or Die” and “We, the People” went on display at Mystetsky Arsenal’s Small Gallery on Sept. 25.
The main aim of the exhibition is to show the American tradition of using humor to judge political and social processes.
In the 19th century, political cartoons flourished and American cartoonists created images, such as Uncle Sam symbolizing the U.S., which quickly gained popularity and are easily recognized by almost everyone today. The exhibition runs through Oct. 7 in Arsenal and then will move to Vernadskiy Library which will host it until Oct.20.
