The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library presents

 

Windows on Death Row

 

Windows on Death Row features over 70 works of art by famous American political cartoonists, as well as from a more unlikely source, death row inmates. Using art as a tool for social awareness, this exhibition opens a window into an often hidden part of the ongoing conversation about capital punishment – exploring the system through the eyes of the incarcerated. At a moment when our country is becoming ever more polarized regarding racial injustice and economic inequality, the questions that this exhibition raises could not be more timely. This traveling exhibit is presented by Patrick Chappatte, Anne-Frederique Widmann, and Anne Hromadka.
 
For a chance to meet the curators, be sure to check out an evening of exhibit programming on February 25, 2017.
