Indiana Cartoons and Cartoonists

Indiana Cartoons - Jim Davis.jpg

From the antics of fat-cat Garfield to the cracker-barrel philosophy of Brown County savant Abe Martin, the many creations of Hoosier cartoonists are highlighted in this colorful exhibit designed to amuse and intrigue your audience. The exhibition explores comic strips, such as "Chic" Jackson's "Roger Bean," which featured the lives of a typical Hoosier family. Some cartoons take on a serious tone like the editorial musings of Pulitzer Prize-winning artist John T. McCutcheon, a fierce opponent of America's entry into World War II.

Ideas for use: Showcase cartoons and drawings from your collection or have a cartoon contest while this exhibit is on display.

Indiana Cartoons and Cartoonists is a 7-foot tall, freestanding exhibit requiring at least 220 square feet of floor space.
