Comic Stripped: A Revealing Look at Southern Stereotypes in Cartoons
November 11, 2017 - March 17, 2018
Comic Stripped offers visitors a chance to look back thoughtfully at cartoons that have shaped America’s vision of the South. The exhibition showcases six long-running cartoons that have themselves become part of Southern history: Li’l Abner, Mountain Boys, and Pogo of the 1930s-1970s; perennial Snuffy Smith, and the recent Kudzu and televisions King of the Hill.
The traveling exhibition is on loan from the Levine Museum of the New South.
