Tony Auth’s cartoons have amused and inflamed the newspaper reading public for over 40 years, both in the Philadelphia region and, through syndication, all over America. In 1971, The Philadelphia Inquirer changed the political landscape when they hired the young artist from southern California to become the paper’s editorial cartoonist. Auth became one of the first to win a Pulitzer for the paper, where he worked for over 40 years.
The Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, PA presents "To Stir, Inform, and Inflame: The Art of Tony Auth" from June 2 - October 21, 2012. This retrospective exhibition explores the full range of Auth’s art for the first time, including drawings, paintings, sketches, and newspaper pages, as well as a selection of his award-winning children’s book illustrations. From his earliest works to the ones he is now creating as the first ever digital artist-in-residence at WHYY's NewsWorks,Tony Auth continues to document and illuminate America in the 21st century.
