Museum
“You really stuck it to me today”: The Political Cartoons of Dwane Powell: Exhibit Opening
The City of Raleigh Museum announced that its retrospective of the nationally syndicated work of political cartoonist and area resident Dwane Powell will open to the public Sunday, June 4. Titled “You really stuck it to me today”: The Political Cartoons of Dwane Powell,” the free exhibit will feature more than 40 cartoons from Powell’s childhood to the present, as well as sketchbooks and artifacts of the cartoonist’s trade. “You really stuck it to me today” will be on display through 2019. Powell has inked over 15,000 cartoons during his four decade-long career that have caricatured presidents, politicians, and North Carolina notables. Powell began cartooning for The News & Observer newspaper in 1975, where he remained until his official retirement in 2009. He continues to ink images for the newspaper’s Sunday edition. His provocative drawings about topics such as gun control and HB2 never fail to tickle funny bones or raise hackles, and are always successful in inspiring audiences to engage in current events conversations.
