You Gotta Laugh – Australian Cartoons of the Vietnam War

January 9, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Jim Bridges is the man behind the Australian Cartoon Museum. For the last 33 years, he has been collecting cartoons in all their many shapes and sizes.
He has over 5,000,000 cartoons in his collection. Our Social and Political History is intrinsically bound up in these sketches, which are also time capsules of our era.

The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is hosting an exhibition of cartoons of the Vietnam War era, depicting the historical and social issues of that period in Australia’s history.

This exhibition concentrates mostly on the soldiers’ point of view and the coping mechanism of humour, including cartoons by Geoff Hook and William Ellis Green (WEG).

Jim will be at the Museum to launch this thought provoking Exhibition at 2pm Tuesday 1 September. Normal entrance fees will apply to anyone wishing to attend this event.

This Exhibition will be at the Museum from 1 September to 30 November 2015.

Contact Sonia Hogg on 03 5956 6400 for more information.
