Event Description

Ryan Standfest Supply + Demand / painted mural with wood crate constructions

These conversations with illustrators, authors, and scholars will examine historical and contemporary notions of freedom from fear, freedom of speech, and the role of illustration as a force in shaping public perception. How does published imagery affect decision-making, public policy, and cultural understanding? Participate in all or some of these compelling conversations. The theme of the symposium’s morning panel on immigration and migration in illustrating is inspired by the Norman Rockwell Museum’s current exhibition, Norman Rockwell: Imagining Freedom.
