The annual wit & humor exhibition opens on April Fool’s Day! Wonderful and eccentric characters leap out of the pages and into the Skylight Gallery for our amusement and illumination. From the sixteenth century through the twenty-first: authors, humorists, entertainers and characters on display vividly remind us that although life may sometimes be filled with a box of chocolates, it's more likely to be filled with the objects of our affection. Those colorful, bold, humorous, and wildly inventive characters that may be found in the Schmulowitz Collection of Wit & Humor.
