Scandals, Scandals, Scandals! UW-Green Bay students show scandal through Lahey cartoons

Green Bay, Wis. — University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students in Assistant Prof. Alison Staudinger’s (Democracy and Justice Studies) American Political Thought class will host a political cartoon exhibit featuring the “scandalous” work of local artist and cartoonist Lyle Lahey. The event kicks off on Monday, May 7, 2018 with a 4 p.m. panel discussion in Studio Arts 353, followed by a grand opening of the exhibit at 5 p.m. in the 407 Gallery (also in Studio Arts).

The display is curated from cartoonist Lyle Lahey’s work, originally published online and in the Green Bay News Chronicle from 1968-2013 and now held in UW-Green Bay’s Archives and Research Center collection.

The  panel discussion focuses on the topic of “political scandals” and how they have influenced American politics. From Watergate to Iran Contra, viewers can learn more about the scandals that defined American political thought. The exhibit will also feature an area for viewers to use their own political voice and create a cartoon about a modern political scandal. The gallery will be open for viewing until May 16.
