Event Details

Friday, August 4, 2017
6-7 p.m.
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.
