Hats Off to Signe Wilkinson - 2011 Moore Visionary Woman Awardee

The Philadelphia Cartoonist Society honored Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson in our second year of existence, 1998. We gave her a gift and an award of appreciation for her years of awesome cartoons. Since then, she has always been gracious and generous in sharing her knowledge of the cartooning business with members of the group. We are excited that Signe is being honored at the 2011 Visionary Woman Awards. The awards gala will be held on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 from 6 to 9 pm at Moore College of Art & Design. Hats off to Signe as we salute her! It’s great to see her get the recognition she deserves. Please CLICK HERE to read more about the Visionary Woman Awards.

Also, you have just a couple weeks to check out Signe Wilkinson: Keeping the World in Line, an exhibit on view in the Graham Gallery until October 15. The exhibition highlights the career of Wilkinson and includes a selection of editorial cartoons that she has produced for the Philadelphia Daily News. Grouped by ongoing themes found in the artist’s work, they include her perspectives on education, peace and/or war, women and more. The exhibition also includes a section devoted to works from Family Tree, a daily comic strip that appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
