The Works Museum Art Gallery presents “Art of the Caricature.” A caricature is a rendering of a person, place or thing which distorts or exaggerates certain features, but still retains a likeness – an exaggerated piece of portrait art. Caricatures first became a popular genre of fine art in the 16th and 17th century and were created by satirists to ridicule public figures and politicians. They remain popular today and are used to poke fun at many things. See contemporary work by Tom Fluharty, John T. Quinn III, and Carlo LoRaso.
On display April 16 – July 3
