Wednesday, August 9, 2017
7 a.m.-10 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." Opening reception is on August 4th from 6-7 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Exhibition then open daily from 7am-10pm until September 22nd.
