On a daily basis, editorial cartoonists deliver biting social commentary made palatable through amusing and well-crafted illustration. Our upcoming exhibition Lines with Power and Purpose: Editorial Cartoons features fifty-one original editorial cartoons from the nation's great metropolitan newspapers during the Golden Age of print journalism.The collection includes six Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists, each demonstrating the theme of political commentary through editorial illustrations and addressing major American issues from the first half of the twentieth century. During its exhibition at the Hjemkomst Center, Lines with Power and Purpose: Editorial Cartoons will feature the work of local Forum cartoonist Trygve Olson, thanks to the generous support of Forum Communications Company.

Join us at the Hjemkomst Center from 5:00PM to 8:00PM on Tuesday, March 26, for our free and public opening reception. Light refreshments will be provided and Trygve Olson will offer an animated keynote at 6:00PM.
