The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library and Museums invites students to illustrate their own political cartoons for our upcoming exhibit, Press & the Presidency! A political cartoon is a type of editorial cartoon that artists use to express their opinions about politics, publics figures, or events. The illustrations are often caricatures, and feature hyperbole and satire to draw attention to issues faced by the world today. Students are invited to voice their opinions through their own political cartoon illustrations.
