See three award-winning cartoonists in one evening

Like cartoons? Love democracy? In Indianapolis?

Here's your chance to see three editorial cartoonists—Gary Varvel, Mike Luckovich and Michael Ramirez— in an evening of "Icons of Political Art," on Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site.

All three will be receiving the "Advancing American Democracy Award" during The Mary Tucker Jasper Speaker Series. This year's program is part of the Presidential Site's mission to "increase participation in the American system of self-government by sharing the life stories, arts, and culture of an American President."
