Brooklyn Public Library


It’s All Politics

Just in case you haven’t already heard, there’s a little election going on tomorrow. Politics has always been too serious for me, but this year has been a humorous change. From frequent guest turns by the candidates on Saturday Night Live to Tina Fey’s dead-on Sarah Palin to the array of colorful ads aimed at youth, this Election Day feels more like a holiday than ever. Brooklyn Public Library is also keeping things on the lighter side.


Come to Central Library tomorrow to see The Art of Politics, an exciting new exhibition of editorial art by illustrator Randy Jones, in which he pokes fun at politics, both past and present. His work has been in publications like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Newsday. Whether you’re a politics know-it-all or you’re trying to figure out how to apply to the Electoral College, you’ll find this display entertaining. Where else can you see Barack Obama and John McCain smearing lipstick on each other? This exhibition will be up until January 10.


What’s your take on this year’s exciting race for president?
