Political Cartoon Exhibit Dates Back To Early 19th Century
COLUMBIA - The State Historical Society of Missouri houses one of the largest and oldest political cartoon exhibits in the world.
Drawings in the exhibit date from the late 19th to the early 21st centuries. The Cartoons give light to controversial issues on both sides of politics.
Although many of the drawings are from a different time in history, patrons say they can easily relate the drawings to todays issues.
Patrons were also given craft tools and encouraged to draw their own political cartoons and post them next to the exhibit. The exhibit will run until the November election.
