An exhibit featuring the works of American political cartoonist Art Young will be hosted by the Loyola University Chicago Libraries.
The exhibit, titled “It’s Hell but Here We Are Again” will display Young’s works
from 1884 to 1943 in chronological order.
“Art Young is America’s best political cartoonist/artist
between Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt,” Anthony Mourek, an avid collector
who has been captivated by the place of art in political dialogue since the
1960s, said. “From the beginning of his career in Chicago to his time in New
York, this exhibition follows the transformation of his political ideology from
Republican to Socialist as the United States became a great power.”
More than 40 works will be included in the exhibit, all of
which come from Mourek’s collection. Mourek and Valerie Higgins will curate the
exhibition, which will gives those who attend a glimpse into the evolving
artistic style and political beliefs of Young during a time when American was
Young’s career began in the late 19th century in
Chicago, where he also studied at the Academy of Design while working for
numerous periodicals including the Daily Mail, Daily News and Chicago Inter-Ocean.
