US – Art vs. Caricature

Art and cartoons in the United States have always been very important. In fact, the US has a reputation for having the best art museums in the world, including the national Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the San Francisco Museum of Modern art and the Seattle art museum. Museums in the United States have become so popular that they generate over 850 visits each year, which is even more than the attendance of all major league sporting events and theme parks combined. They include a gigantic variety of works of art, going from ancient Greek history to modern art, along with many paintings, sculptures, and artifacts.

On the other hand, cartoons in the US don’t have the same role as other art; they are rather distractions and amusement for the population. Since the presidential elections, many political cartoons have been made, to mock Trump or Hillary. Nevertheless, cartoons don’t always have to be political; cartoonists create them under any pretext. For instance, with the Falcons having blown a 25 points lead during the Super Bowl, many cartoonists decided to draw cartoons making fun of the Falcons. Cartoons in the US are therefore a way of communicating current events through a specific point of view or with an ironic tone.

      hello Corey!
      For sure! We would love to have you on the team!
      Our next topic will be : March 3rd is World Wildlife Day. A day to raise awareness for the growing threat of climate changed and its effects. Whether it is sea levels rising, deforestation, or drought, the effects of global warming on our daily lives have no limits. However, humans aren’t the only living beings who feel the change. Plants and animals are often much more affected and even struggle for survival.

      What kinds of organisms are endangered in your country? What specifically is changing in their environment (human activity, melting ice caps, food chain etc.)? To what extent are the plants or animals affected? What can people or are people/organizations already doing to help? Your piece should be a minimum of 250 words long and remember to include a separate picture. Have fun!
      Send your piece by March 3rd!
