Dwane Powell

When: Wed., July 19, 6-7:30 p.m. 2017

In his thirty-plus years as The News & Observer's political cartoonist, Dwane Powell had plenty of chances to skewer Jesse Helms—then a seemingly immortal North Carolina senator—who inadvertently provided the title of Powell's ongoing retrospective at the City of Raleigh Museum, You Really Stuck It to Me Today. As the story goes, that's what Helms called Powell and said, with begrudging admiration, after one particularly bang-on barb. But in a long, nationally syndicated career, Powell's pen cut both left and right, packing a pugnacious time capsule with poly-political polemics. See a select forty of the fifteen thousand cartoons Powell has produced, including sketches dating back to his childhood, after taking in his public talk with museum director Ernest Dollar. —Brian Howe
