Place your tongue firmly in your cheek, and enjoy centuries of satire on paper. Drawn from our collection, this exhibition of comic commentary includes works by Hogarth, Daumier, Chagall, and many other artists who enlivened their messages with wit.


Toledo’s Satirist: Pulitzer Prize Winner Nick Anderson

Through June 25, 2006

Hitchcock Gallery

Toledo native Nick Anderson began cartooning for his high school newspaper when he was 15 years old. Two decades later, he was awarded the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning “characterized by originality, editorial effectiveness, quality of drawing and pictorial effect.” Once employed by the Louisville Courier-Journal and now by the Houston Chronicle, Anderson’s cartoons have also been published in Newsweek, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, and The Toledo Free Press. Stop by Hitchcock Gallery to sample not only Anderson’s original drawings, but also the examples of the manual and digital cartooning processes this native art star employs.


Visions of Freedom: Celebrating Juneteenth

Through July 9, 2006

Community Gallery

Enjoy works of art that pay tribute to African American artists and works of art with Juneteenth themes.


Ansel Adams                                          

June 30 – September 24, 2006

Gallery 18

Perhaps no other American photographer created a signature style as recognizable as that of Ansel Adams. His precise images of the American West landscape have become iconic for both their subject matter, as well as their technical perfection. This summer, venture into a world where the purity of the photographic process captured the grandeur of nature itself.
