Faces on the Barroom Floor

The Omaha Press Club “Face on the Barroom Floor” honors newsmakers impacting the community. The event features dinner, a late of roasters, and unveiling of the honoree’s caricature.

Since the Face events began back in 1971, only five artists have been involved. Jim Horan, a former Omaha World-Herald cartoonist, drew 160 of the Faces before retiring in 2019. He was followed by Wayne Sealy, a freelance commercial artist who did three “Faces” (Tom Shatel, Jim and Todd Murphy, and John and Viv Ewing). Two artists filled in for Horan during his tenure — Tom Dolphins did the Face caricature for Gerald Ford in 1975, while Bill Johns was the artist who did the caricature of Horan in 1991. Since 2021, Jeff Koterba, another former Omaha World-Herald cartoonist, has been the “Face” artist.
