Think & Tell: Milt Priggee - Political Cartooning: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Political imagery can touch the heart, coalesce the truth and make people think. It can make a difference in the life of a person and a country. But there are no longer any staff editorial cartoonists at newspapers anywhere in Washington. What does that mean for our state? Milt Priggee has been a professional political cartoonist since 1976, including several years at The Spokesman-Review in Spokane. He will explain the who, what, where, when, why and how of political commentary as it evolves from print to digital-media platforms. The discussion will then turn to some of Priggee’s own cartoons, including some which were rejected from publication, and explore the stories behind the art and the importance of political cartooning as a medium.
City Arts is delighted to partner with powerhouse Humanities Washington on our lunchtime talks during the fest. All are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Humanities Washington sparks conversation and critical thinking using story as a catalyst, nurturing thoughtful and engaged.
