The Kansas City Star has reported the news in the greater Kansas City region since 1880. Many editorial cartoonists have critiqued contemporary culture for the paper, but two have lasted longer than most: S. J. (Silvey Jackson) Ray, who worked for the Star from 1931 to 1963, and Lee Judge, who has served as the editorial cartoonist since 1981. Through a wide array of over 60 cartoons by Ray and Judge from the SHSMO collection, this exhibition displays humorous and creative approaches to contemporary issues. Viewers can compare the styles, perspectives, and attitudes of two artists. Many of the topics addressed in the cartoons remain relevant today, and spectators may marvel at how technology has altered the understanding of the world over the last 86 years.
