After 25 years at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers was fired in June 2018. Prior to his dismissal, the newspaper refused to publish a series of cartoons produced over three months, starting in March 2018. We invite you to Spiked: The Unpublished Political Cartoons of Rob Rogers to see the original works of Rogers' unpublished editorial cartoons, alongside larger, colorized versions that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette withheld from publication. In addition to our opening reception on July 18, this fall the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design will be hosting a series of conversations regarding issues around censorship, freedom of the press, journalistic integrity and the consequences of nationalism to a democracy in collaboration with both the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) and GW's School for Media and Public Affairs (SMPA).
This exhibit was produced by the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at the George Washington University. It was organized in conjunction with University Art Gallery, University of Pittsburgh and in collaboration with the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC).
The exhibit will show 18 cartoons or ideas spiked between March 6 and June 3, 2018 (10 finished cartoons and 8 sketches).
