Herb Block President’s Exhibit
The Vernon and Doris Bishop Library will host a semester-long exhibit displaying reproductions of work by the late cartoonist Herbert Block. Famously known as “Herblock,” Block was an editorial cartoonist for the Washington Post who used his work to defend the rights and freedoms of Americans. He received three Pulitzer Prizes and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
“A Feast for the Eyes”
This exhibition will examine the tradition of still-life painting and the importance that food has played as a subject of the genre. The painting of food has fascinated artists since antiquity and their portrayals, in turn, bring to light a culture’s relationship with food. The exhibition is part of the Colloquium Series on HAPPINESS.
