An exhibition in the Inez Greenberg Gallery at the Bloomington Theatre and Art Center in Bloomington, Minnesota will feature the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Sack.

     Sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and Kraus-Anderson Companies, “Cartoonival” opens Friday, June 5 with a reception from 6:00-8:00 pm and remains on view through July 10, 2015, which will showcase a cornucopia of his rarely seen non-political, lighthearted, oddball characters—in sculptural form. Mermaids with an attitude, tattooed muscle men, mischievous cats, and good-natured aliens will come off the page and off the wall in non-traditional mediums including paper mache, wire, and even seed art!
