Event Phone: 317-631-1888 Presidential Humor showcases the humorous side of the presidency and those seeking the office, with a focus on parody, caricature, anecdote and witticisms.


The exhibit will include 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.


"Presidential Humor is about recognizing how humor is used as a tool in democracies to make statements about leaders and how something as serious as politics can cause people to laugh out loud," said Curatorial Fellow Emily Hanawalt.
