An exhibit that examines democracy through the work of legendary political cartoonist Herb Block of The Washington Post. Block's powerful cartoons pose important questions about the essence of democracy and the challenges a democratic citizenry faces, such as voting, paying taxes, meeting civic responsbilities, and expecting the best of our elected officials.
Herbert Block (1909-2001), the cartoonist known as "Herblock," became the most honored cartoonist of his time, winning three Pulitzer Prizes, and sharing a fourth for his Watergate cartoons. He caricatured thirteen U.S. presidents, from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush, chronicling American history from the 1929 Stock Market Crash through the summer of 2001.
The exhibit is open during the museum's public hours: Wednesday-Friday from 9 am - 4 pm and Saturday & Sunday from 12-4 pm. Admission is free.
