A new exhibit on freedom of speech opens Saturday, April 20, at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. "Front Line: Editorial Cartoonists and the First Amendment" runs until October 20, and be part of this year's CXC Festival in Columbus, OH.
The exhibit, with work from over 70 cartoonists, was curated by Lucy Caswell and Ann Telnaes.
“I would like to encourage our visitors to think about the role of the editorial cartoonist to stimulate voters to think about issues that matter to our democracy,” said Lucy Caswell, founding curator at Billy Ireland, talking to Columbus Alive.
Caswell co-curated the exhibition with Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Ann Telnaes, examining how the editorial cartoonist both benefits from and defends free speech and expression.
