Political cartooning after Charlie Hebdo: An evening

with editorial cartoonist Kevin KAL Kallaugher


Monday, March 23, 5:30 p.m.

Freedom Forum Conference Center, Carroll Hall


(Chapel Hill, N.C. – Feb. 5, 2015) – Join us Monday, March 23, at 5:30 p.m., in the Freedom Forum Conference Center for a discussion with Kevin Kallaugher (KAL), the international award-winning editorial cartoonist for The Baltimore Sun and The Economist magazine of London, about his career as a visual commentator and lampoon artist.


In a distinguished career that spans more than 36 years, KAL has created over 8,000 cartoons and 140 magazine covers.  His resume includes six collections of his published work, seven international honors and awards, and major exhibitions in a dozen countries.


KAL, a Norwalk, Connecticut, native and Harvard graduate, is currently the artist-in-residence at University of Maryland Baltimore County.  He has created acclaimed animations and calendars, toured the United States with the Second City improv comedy troupe and addressed audiences around the world.


In 1999, The World Encyclopedia of Cartoons said of KAL, “Commanding a masterful style, Kallaugher stands among the premier caricaturists of the (20th) century.”


The event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy, the curriculum in global studies and World View.
