City Museum
This cartoon is part of a collection of Rie Munoz artwork recently donated to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum.

The Munoz Family last Thursday donated a collection of Rie Munoz original artwork to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. The donation included five original watercolor paintings, 55 original pen-and-ink political cartoons that were published by the Alaska Sunday Press--now the Juneau Empire--in the 1950s and 1960s. Also included from the same era are hundreds of newspaper clippings of cartoons.

Munoz came to Alaska in 1950 for a short visit on board the steamship Princess Louise.
The 55 political cartoons donated to the City Museum poke gentle fun at past local and state politicians and are a glimpse into Juneau's history.
"The cartoons debated topics such as commercial fishing and capital moves, similar issues faced today," said Juan Munoz in a release.



Thank you for your interest in the artwork of Rie Muñoz!

Sincerely,
Munoz
