As a companion piece to Graphic Content Exhibition, the NLM is bringing back select pieces from Caretoons, a popular annual exhibition/competition that ran from 2005-2010. In creating Caretoons, the NLM wanted to design an exhibition that used the powerful artform of cartooning to celebrate diversity, inclusion, liberty, and freedom. Through drawings submitted by children, as well as amateur and professional artists from around the world, the images in Caretoons grapple with contemporary issues through the approachable lens of cartoons and graphic art. This exhibition is included with the price of admission. Tickets may be purchased online or at the Museum.
Since the NLM’s founding, a major component of our work has been our series of annual awards programs honoring the everyday heroes who live among us. This exhibition celebrates teachers, students, police officers, firefighters & first-responders, and healthcare professionals who have demonstrated extraordinary courage and made a difference in the lives of others.
