Opening Reception - "Tooned In: The Political Art of Phil Hands"
The Wisconsin Union
Friday, August 4, 2017
Gallery 1308, Union South
Come explore WUD Art Committee's newest installation in Union South's Gallery 1308! "Tooned in: The political art of Phil Hands" shows the Wisconsin State Journal artist's work in the Union South gallery. Phil Hands' interest in political art is described as such: "Since cavemen scrawled on walls, people have been using drawings to satirize the world around them. Political cartoons compress complex ideas, and point out hypocrisy with humor. In a political era ripe for satire, there’s never been a better time to learn about the art of the cartoon." Light refreshments will be provided.
