Does the image above make you feel … something?
Artist John Cuneo’s work, “Bush’s Final F.U.,” is part of the exhibition “Lines of Attack: Conflicts in Caricature,” opening Thursday, Feb. 4.
Visitors will have the chance to react to the show on a webcam at the Free Speech Booth outside the gallery. We’ll publish the videos on YouTube. Watch one here.
The opening event on Feb. 4 includes a talk at 6 p.m. by Chris Lamb, professor of communications, College of Charleston, and the author of Drawn to Extremes: The Use and Abuse of Editorial Cartoons in the United States.
