Cartoonist Dwane Powell has been a stalwart presence in the pages of the News & Observer from the late 1970s until today. This career retrospective encompasses the high (and low) points of a changing North Carolina, and takes a snarky, ink-stained look at the Tarheel state and beyond. From Jesse Helms to Pat McCrory, gun control to HB2, this exhibit is a perfect run up to this year’s Presidential Election. “Dwane Powell: The Art of Politics” is part of the 2016 Political Cartoon and Satire Festival at Duke University, September 21-24, 2016.
