A new exhibit now occupies the History Lives Showcase Gallery inside the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.
The exhibit showcases a selection of political cartoons drawn from the Clifford H. (Baldy) Baldowski Editorial Cartoon Collection.
The cartoons have been matched with the library’s six collecting areas to spotlight stories connected to each of the “politics” areas.
In addition to selecting which cartoons to display, student curator Kaylynn Washnock also sorted through hours of the Russell Library’s oral history recordings to find six audio clips that connect with the cartoons on display.
The clips were selected from a variety of collections including the Reflections on Georgia Politics Series, The First Person Project and The Georgia Environmental Oral History Project-all of which are ongoing initiatives of the Russell Library’s Oral History and Media Unit.
The Russell Library Gallery is open free to the public weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information on the exhibit, email email@example.com or call 706-542-5788.
