HPU to Host Presentation by Political Illustrator Steve Brodner

Posted on September 26, 2012.

Steve Brodner Presents at High Point UniversityHIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 26, 2012 – High Point University’s School of Art and Design is hosting a visual presentation by renowned American satirical illustrator and caricaturist Steve Brodner. The presentation will be held at 4 p.m. on Oct. 3 in Phillips Hall. The event is open to the public.

As election season is in full swing and students at HPU have been heavily involved in the HPU Democracy USA Project, Brodner’s presentation will be timely and informative. Brodner will be presenting his work, titled “A life in Illustration. The Power of Imagery and its Application in Storytelling.”

Brodner is a renowned and awarded American satirical illustrator and caricaturist who has worked for publications such as The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Time, Newsweek, Esquire and The Nation. His work, first widely seen exposing and attacking Reagan-era scandals, is credited with helping spearhead the 1980’s revival of pointed and entertaining graphic commentary in the U.S.

“Brodner’s presentation will be like no other seen or heard here on campus,” says Allan Beaver, artist in residence in the School of Art and Design. “He is very much a highly opinionated political illustrator, and we hope he sets off some incendiary critical thinking.”

Parking will be available for community members in the lot behind the Wilson School of Commerce.
