Exhibition Date, Spring Semester 2014-This foyer exhibit highlights the art work of two of Rhode Island's most prolific newspaper illustrators, John J. Fawcett and Frank B. Lanning. Fawcett worked for the Providence Evening Bulletin satirizing every major relevant theme of the day for decades. Frank Lanning immortalized the teams of almost every collegiate sport played by Rhode Island's educational institutions during the latter half of the 20th century.
The exhibit presents original artwork from each artist that was published in either the Providence Evening Journal or the Providence Journal-Bulletin. Many of these editorial cartoons were also syndicated, which brought the illustrations national attention at the time.
