In the summer of 2007, Bob contacted Ben Rogers (director of the Poage Library) about collaborating on an editorial cartoon exhibit. Bob is a collector of original editorial cartoons, as well as being a cartoonist. The year-long partnership brought about an exhibition and all-day celebration of editorial cartoons on October 18, 2008.
More than 100 cartoons were displayed throughout the Moody, Jones and Poage libraries (89 of which were on loan from Bob) and a catalog was printed with biographies of the 18 cartoonists featured, as well as descriptions of each cartoon provided by Bob.
Visit the Drawing Power site to see what happened when a great idea was mixed with collarboration, partnerships and a little elbow grease.
