The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) is changing the focus of its 50th-anniversary exhibit at American University’s Katzen Arts Center in Washington, D.C.
Originally, the AAEC was going to spotlight presidential-campaign cartoons from the last 13 elections — from the 1960 one to the upcoming 2008 one. But that proved too difficult to assemble, so now the organization plans to exhibit cartoons about President Bush and others in his administration, including Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, etc.
The new deadline to send cartoons is April 13, according to AAEC President Rob Rogers, who does editorial cartoons for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and United Media.
For more information about the exhibit, see the AAEC’s EditorialCartoonists.com site.
The AAEC is holding its 50th-anniversary convention this July 4-7 in Washington, D.C.
