EXCLUSIVE TWO NIGHT SOLO EXHIBITION BY KAL (KEVIN KALLAUGHER) 

Kevin Kallaugher (KAL) is the editorial cartoonist for The Economist magazine of London and The Baltimore Sun.

After graduating from Harvard College with honors in 1977, Kevin embarked on a bicycle tour of the British Isles, where he joined the Brighton Basketball Club as a player and coach. After the club hit financial difficulties, Kevin drew caricatures of tourists in Trafalgar Square and on Brighton Pier. In March 1978, The Economist recruited him to become their first resident cartoonist in their 145 year history.

 EXPLORE THE CARTOONS ON DISPLAY & MEET THE ARTIST BEHIND THE ARTWORK 

Editorial cartoons are unlike any other form of commentary. For over 500 years the art of political cartoons has been used to convey social and political messages through the use of images familiar to all of the people in a society.
Visual in nature, cartoons highlight minute details to make a specific point. With simple pen strokes, they provide a commentary in ways that eludes written or spoken reporting, a truly unique historical perspective-entertaining, yet clever, and insightful. In US, this powerful form of art has always reflected key moments in history.


 

ENJOY LIVE PERFORMANCE BY SUSPICIOUS PACKAGE

Continuing with the zany nature of the cartoons, the ticketed event will feature live musical performance by local journo-band Suspicious Package, comprised of reporters armed with their musical talent and rock star looks. Band members include Pulitzer Prize-winning Editorial Cartoonist at The Washington Post Tom Toles, senior government officials Christina Sevilla and Bryan Greene, former TIME/Bloomberg correspondent and journalist Tim Burger and Director of Education and Outreach for the National Security Journalism Initiative at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, Josh Meyer.
