AUTHentic Philly: Tony Auth's Cartoons of Philadelphia


Opening October 11, 2013, over 40 Philadelphia-centric works of Pulitzer Prize winner and cartoonist Tony Auth will be on view in the Philadelphia History Museum's "Played in Philadelphia" gallery in a new exhibition, AUTHentic Philly: Tony Auth's Cartoons of Philadelphia. Visitors can explore editorial and political cartoons drawn for The Philadelphia Inquirer between 1972 and 2013, interact with digital elements highlighting Auth's work today, view his drafting table, and create their own cartoon for display.

An Ohio native who grew up in Los Angeles, Tony Auth began his Philadelphia career in 1971 at The Philadelphia Inquirer. The works in this exhibition reflect Auth's commentary on the last half century of Philadelphia as seen through his cartoons. The exhibition, a true nod to Philadelphia's hometown history, runs through January 2014.
