Cartoonist Lyle Lahey’s work recognizes the role of art in political dissent and contemporary issues
“An Age In Ink” exhibit opens in the 407 Gallery in Studio Arts, UW-Green Bay, Monday, April 3, with an event from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. to introduce the exhibit. This 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 UWGB’s Archives and Research Center collection. “An Age in Ink” is put on by students in DJS/POL SCI 349: American Political Thought, and compares vintage and recent Lahey work on issues of contemporary importance — from climate change, to immigration and local urban development. Visitors are encouraged to add their own cartoon to express their political voice to the “doodle for your noodle” section. The 407 Gallery will display the exhibit all week. Please encourage your students to attend and consider visiting yourself to recognize the role of art in political dissent and commentary.
