Now through January 19: George Fisher: The Presidents Exhibit at Laman Library, Main Branch. George Fisher, born in Searcy, Arkansas, was a political cartoonist whose work influenced and helped define politics for a generation. He created a series of visual metaphors and themes that were widely associated with the politicians he caricatured and became a part of Arkansas political folklore. Fisher approached national issues and figures with the swagger afforded a Washington outsider. His unapologetic depictions of the Nixon, Carter, Ford, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations are represented in this exhibition of 30 drawings from the Arkansas Arts Center Library Collection of George Fisher Cartoons.
