Political cartoonist, Rob Rogers, was fired from his position at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette all because his work has been highly critical of the current administration.
They say, “As an institution dedicated to educating the next generation of cultural leaders, it is imperative that we support the dialogues and works that critique our leaders and our government.”
This new installation features Rogers’ unpublished cartoons in both original and colorized form, and will bring up issues around censorship, freedom of the press, journalistic and creative integrity.
You can also see the exhibition until October 14, between Tuesday and Friday, and weekends, until 6:00pm. Share your experiences and opinions on the restriction of the free press on social media using the hashtag #SpikedCartoons.
