Long before Mad Magazine and the National Lampoon came into existence, cartoonists of the late 1800s published their work in the pages of Puck. The Driehaus Museum's latest exhibition, "With a Wink and a Nod: Cartoonists of the Gilded Age," explores the bold and subversive drawings that filled this pioneering publication, including cartoons that confronted wealth, politics and religion. With 74 original drawings and 20 vintage magazine on display, you'll get a taste for the sense of humor that grew out of a bygone age (and probably have a laugh or two while you're at it).
