“Political Cartooning in New York City”, Tuesday, November 3rd, 6:30 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for members, and $5 for students
Boss Tweed may have been the most powerful man in the city, but he was still tormented by Thomas Nast’s biting parodies of him as a cartoon. Decades later, Jules Feiffer took on Presidents from Eisenhower to Clinton in the pages of the Village Voice. Parsons faculty member Bill Kartalopoulos will lead a panel exploring the historical – and ongoing – interaction between political cartoons, New York City, and the public.Panel members will include: graphic novelist and illustratorEric Drooker, whose work regularly appears on the cover of The New Yorker; cartoonist and SVA faculty member Tom Hart, whose Hutch Owen has appeared in two book collections and a daily comic strip in the Metro; New York Times contributor and cartoonist Tim Kreider, whose cartoon, The Pain – When Will It End?, has been collected in two books; and World War 3 Illustrated co-founder, graphic novelist, and “Spy vs. Spy” artist Peter Kuper, whose “Eye of the Beholder” was the first comic strip to regularly appear in The New York Times.
