“Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons and Sculpture from the Bush Years” will be on display at the Fullerton Museum Center starting Friday, October 5, 2012.  Pat Oliphant, called by the New York Times, “the most influential cartoonist now working,” is widely considered the dean of the profession and one of its sharpest most daring practitioners.

The opening reception will take place on Friday, October 5 from 6pm to 10pm and will be free to the public. The reception will include refreshments, entertainment and a curator’s talk.

“Leadership” will be open to the public through January 6, 2013. On display will be original ink drawings, sketches, prints and sculptures from 2001-2009 as well as a sampling of the artist’s more recent work.

Museum admission is $4 for adults, $3 for students with student identification and senior citizens 65 and older, $1 for children 6 to 12, and free to children under 5 and to members of the Fullerton Museum Center. 

The award-winning Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N. Pomona Ave., one block east of Harbor Boulevard, in downtown Fullerton.

Further information about the exhibit opening reception may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545.  Persons requiring special accommodations to participate in the exhibit opening events or view the exhibit are asked to notify the museum staff prior to coming to the Fullerton Museum Center.
