Politics as Usual: Political Cartoons by Dick Locher at Dubuque Museum of Art


DUBUQUE.- Dick Locher's ability to capture the absurdities of life through political cartooning is known worldwide. His impact as a widely recognized cartoonist and commentator on American life is seen in the numerous awards he has received, including the Pulitzer Prize.

Locher established his reputation as one of the leading editorial cartoonists at the Chicago Tribune, where he worked since 1973. Since 1983, he has been the artist of the "Dick Tracy" comic strip and in 2005 took over as both writer and artist. Locher's previous experience with the strip was as Chester Gould's assistant from 1957 to 1961. Prior to joining the Chicago Tribune, he was president of his own sales-promotion agency. Locher is also know as a fine art painter, sculptor, and inventor. He is originally from Dubuque.

This exhibition includes over 50of Locher's political cartoons and 7 small caricature sculptures. New cartoons will be added to the display throughout the duration of the exhibition as the artist completes updated drawings for this election season.
