Talk in Room 320 of Brown Center will be followed by small reception, book signing
We're proud to announce a lecture from Jerelle Kraus, former art director of The New York Times Op-Ed page, on Friday, Oct. 16 at 1 p.m. in Room 320 of Brown Center. Kraus will speak as part of the History of Illustration course being taught in the art history department this semester. She will discuss the impact of Eastern European art on the look of the Op-Ed page and how that influenced editorial illustration in the last half of the 20th century. Her 13 years of experience at The Times makes her an expert in this area of illustration history.
The course this semester is formatted as a research class for which students are working in small groups researching distinct focal areas in the practice's history and linking them to narrative works through time using the context of social, political, technological and aesthetic influences.
The lecture is open to the public and is followed by a small reception and book-signing of Kraus's recent book, All the Art that's Fit to Print, from Columbia Press.
This lecture is being sponsored by the Office of Research and the Mixed Media Lecture Series as a co-departmental initiative.
