Stockbridge, MA, February 11, 2016—In celebration of Presidents Week, Norman Rockwell Museum will present a talk with political illustrator, Steve Brodner, on Friday, February 19, starting at 2 p.m. Brodner will provide a look at the American Presidency during his afternoon lecture; he is currently working on Presidents, a new book that will explore the significant events of the administration of President William McKinley through the commander-in-chief to come. A reception will follow the lecture, which is free with regular Museum admission.
Steve Brodner is an award-winning artist, whose cartoons and caricatures have appeared in such prominent publications as The New York Times, National Lampoon, Sports Illustrated, Playboy, Spy, Esquire, The Progressive, The Washington Post, The Nation, and Village Voice, among others. Brodner has also documented seven national political conventions in visual essay form—the result of days or weeks spent with the candidates on the campaign trail. His work was on view at Norman Rockwell Museum in advance of the 2008 presidential election in the exhibition, Raw Nerve! The Political Art of Steve Brodner.
