Political cartoons curated by Steve Brodner and Francis Di Tommaso. Art as Witness was first organized and exhibited in 2018 at the School of Visual Arts in New York City as a response to the changing political landscape in the United States. Graphic arts, political satire, cartoons, and illustration are the tools that make up the vocabulary of these creative professionals. Artistic license is the credential that society bestows on their voices — often ignored, but sometimes celebrated on a scale of great impact and cultural influence. In fact, some of the works in this exhibition have touched an enormous audience and have even graced the covers of magazines seen by millions of people. Opening Reception: Thu, Feb 20, 6-8pm. Location: Human Rights Institute Gallery.
