NEW YORK (AP) - The Museum of the City of New York is celebrating a cartoonist whose hilarious and uncanny observations have tickled readers of The New Yorker for decades.

The museum features more than 200 cartoons by Roz Chast (chast), many of which have never been published.

A mural that the artist created for the exhibition keenly captures the absurdities of daily life. The work, called “Subway Sofa,” depicts riders inside a subway car crowded on a couch in front of a snack-filled coffee table.

Director Whitney Donhauser says Chast’s unique sense of humor highlights “the silliness and oddities” that make the city so special.

Chast has been a New Yorker cartoonist since 1978. Her work also has appeared in children’s books and other magazines.



The exhibition runs through Oct. 9.
