Dear Art Educators,

Cartoon America
http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/cartoonamerica/

"James Arthur Wood, Jr., began collecting original cartoon art as a
childhood hobby. Wood worked diligently throughout his professional
life as an editorial cartoonist to showcase his collection. He
ultimately turned to the Library of Congress to preserve and present
his collection to the American people and the world. The Library's Art
Wood Collection of Cartoon and Caricature contains more than 36,000
original cartoon drawings. The 102 drawings selected for this
exhibition reflect Woods primary collecting interests and the vitality
of an innovative and evolving art form." (copied from the site).

Enjoy!

Judy Decker
