TULSA, Oklahoma -

Some people grab the newspaper to check out political cartoons on the editorial page. Well, it may not be the paper, but the Zarrow Center for Art and Education has an exhibit featuring political cartoons from past to present.

Sean Latham, Director of the Oklahoma Center of the Humanities located at TU, walked us through this exhibition, Art of Politics.

"This is Thomas Nast "The Brains" which was about political corruption in New York in the 19th century. And this idea of money in politics seems absolutely essential to what we are dealing with," he said.

The other images we are looking at focus on refugees and immigration - today's issues in cartoons from decades ago.

"The more things change the more they stay the same," Latham said.

The Oklahoma Center of the Humanities at TU co-sponsored the exhibit which features cartoons from artists all over the country, including a few from Bruce Plante of the Tulsa World.

The exhibit looks at the history of political cartoons and how they have reflected our national identity.

If you are one who enjoys political cartoons and the stories they tell, the exhibit will be at the Zarrow Center through April.

TU is hosting a broader discussion of stereotypes and humor in political cartoons in early April. You can find more information here.
