Turbulent times for political cartoonists

"Colorful World" by P. X. Molina

Cartoon by Pedro X. Molina

A recent article in the Columbia Journalism Review caught our attention. Writer Sam Thielman describes how political cartoons are, in some ways, the perfect media for our times, delivering their messages swiftly and straight to the gut. But they have also gotten their creators into serious trouble.

Our new artist-in-residence, Pedro X. Molina, will share his own take on the power and perils of political cartooning at our “Voices of Freedom” event on Friday, October 4, at 8 p.m. at the Community School of Music and Arts, 330 E Martin Luther King Jr St. in Ithaca.
