Fragile Earth: 50 Years of Environmental Editorial Cartoons Exhibition

State Historical Society of Missouri Art Gallery

605 Elm Street
Columbia, MO 

Since the 1930s, environmental issues have played a growing role in shaping public policy in the United States. Decades of activism have called attention to the dangers of pesticides, pollution, deforestation, extinction, and climate change. This exhibition examines original editorial cartoons by Missouri artists that explore these environmental concerns. Open now through Winter 2023 during regular visitor hours in the SHSMO Art Gallery.
