Presidential Humor

“People say satire is dead. It’s not dead; it’s alive and living at the White House.” Robin Williams

This exhibit, part of our New Century Curator Initiative, showcases the humorous side of the presidency and those seeking the office, with a focus on parody, caricature, anecdote and witticisms.

The exhibit includes the quirkier items that have been created through the years, including political campaign items, paraphernalia, toys, pet related items, and clothing to demonstrate how humor has been used effectively by candidates and political foes alike.

Join us for the Grand Opening on Thursday, January 24 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided at this open house-style event, which will take place in the Welcome Center of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site.

“An American citizen could not be a good citizen who did not have a hope in his heart.” Benjamin Harrison
