Grahame Arnould: Turning Heads
November 17, 2016 – April 2, 2017
This exhibit highlights the work of editorial cartoonist, Grahame Arnould. As an avid outdoorsman, Arnould’s work often focuses on biodiversity and threats to the environment. In the tradition of editorial cartooning, the works in this display attempt to raise awareness of these issues.  Visitors can also get involved by writing their own caption for a funny gag cartoon.

May 28, 2016 – April 30, 2017
