Join Art Spiegelman with host Michael Kimmelman at Cleveland Public Theatre.
Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues--A Cleveland Public Library Event
This program engages the diverse Cleveland community in two public conversations per year and is supported by the Cleveland Public Library's Lockwood Thompson Fund. The Spectrum 2007 series is Pen & Ink. Words and images have played a crucial role in storytelling and visual communication. Artists and writers continue to push in new directions while challenging the perceptions of high and low art, often with irreverence and commentary. The first dialogue will feature cartoonist and author Art Spiegelman, with host and moderator Michael Kimmelman, Chief Art Critic for the New York Times.
Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy box and onto the literature shelves. He won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Maus and Maus II, the story of his parents' survival of the Nazi regime and lives later in America. His work has been published in many periodicals, including The New Yorker. In 2004 he completed In the Shadow of Now Towers.
Moderator Michael Kimmelman, educated at Yale and Harvard, is the author of several acclaimed books, most recently The Accidental Masterpiece: On the Art of Life and Vice-Versa. He has written and hosted various television shows about the arts and is also a pianist. Seating is limited. RSVP by calling 216-621-5330 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by May 16. For more information, call 216-623-2869.
