Caricature Exhibit Opens @ Nasher


Admission to the Nasher Museum of Art is free every Thursday, 5-9pm, and today will mark the opening of the new Lines of Attack: Conflicts in Caricature exhibit. Also currently running is the Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids exhibit, which provides some insight into Warhol's creative process, and includes some paintings of the Nasher family themselves.

Tonight will also afford the opportunity to meet Chris Lamb, professor of communications, College of Charleston, and author of Drawn to Extremes: The Use and Abuse of Editorial Cartoons in the United States. A reception will follow, and they will have a cash bar.

Visitors will also have the chance to react to the show on a webcam at the Free Speech Booth outside the gallery. Nasher will then publish the videos on their YouTube channel.
