NIU Art Museum Exhibit: Hand in Hand

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - Saturday, May 20, 2017

Hand in Hand: The Visual Arts as a Means of Social and Political Propaganda, Protest and Commentary

Exploring the nuanced ways artists respond to their social and political landscapes using visual language and hyperbole to critique, valorize and satirize the events and subjects of their times—often making us grimace and laugh in the process.

Featured Art:

“What a Frightful Spectacle!”: Lithographs of Honoré Daumier
Theoretical Mockery: Satirical Prints by Sidney Chafetz
A Tale of Donkeys and Elephants; Satire with the Wink of a Fox (opens April 6th)
Over the Top to Victory!: Exploring government-sponsored posters issued during the First World War
