This year’s Jack Davis Distinguished Visiting Artist Lecture, an annual program created to honor Davis’ contributions to popular culture while bringing professional illustrators to campus, is “Game of Thrones: The Political Art of Steve Brodner.” Brodner, one of the foremost visual satirists in the political world today, has contributed illustrations to a lengthy list of major publications, including The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Spy, Playboy, Harper’s and The New York Times. He is also the filmmaker behind several shorts: The Naked Campaign, a series of 28 films covering the 2008 Presidential campaign for The New Yorker‘s website; Need to Know, a commentary feature for PBS and Smashing Crayons for Slate.com. The free lecture begins at 5:30 p.m. in room 151.
