Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs
On view through October 26, 2015
Over the past 37 years, readers of The New Yorker have been enjoying cartoonist Roz Chast’s signature style and wit. From her timelessly funny cartoons and lively children’s picture books, to her intricately-painted pysanka eggs and hand-made textiles, Roz Chast: Cartoon Memoirs will feature works representing the breadth of Chast’s entire artistic career. A highlight of the exhibition will be nearly 120 original drawings from her award-winning memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? which tackles the sensitive subject of caring for the elderly, with thoughtful insight and humor.
