Cartooning the White House: Celebrating comic artist Patrick Oliphant

Cartooning the White House: Celebrating comic artist Patrick Oliphant

In celebration of the University of Virginia’s recent acquisition of Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Patrick Oliphant's archive, the Miller Center will convene a special program featuring historians and former White House officials to offer their reflections on the presidency through the artist's work.

With a career spanning nine presidents, from Lyndon Johnson to Barack Obama, Oliphant has been called the most influential editorial cartoonist according to The New York Times.

This event will feature two panels—one with historians and the second with practitioners who will be asked to reflect on a set of era-relevant Oliphant cartoons. The cartoons will be presented on screen for the audience to view during the program.

Newcomb Hall Theatre
2:00–5:00 pm 

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. For more information: https://millercenter.org/news-events/events/cartooning-white-house-celebrating-comic-artist-patrick-oliphant
