Arts & Culture – It’s Not Funny

Sunday, June 7 at 3pm

Victor Juhasz

known nationally for his humorous caricatures and illustrations, on Sunday, June 7, 3 pm via zoom.  In It’s Not Funny Anymore: Satirical Illustration in an Age of Hostile Absurdity. Mr. Juhasz will describe the process, as well as the challenges and limitations, of creating images of political satire and caricature in contemporary American culture, where current reality seems to trump (no pun intended) any fiction in terms of absurdity.

Victor Juhasz is an award-winning illustrator and cartoonist, whose work is published regularly in Time, Rolling Stone, The Nation, and The American Prospect, among others.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York City, he began illustrating for The New York Times while still a student. While caricature and humorous illustration comprise the main body of his work, his love of drawing has allowed him to cross over to other aspects of the profession as a children’s book illustrator, and as an artist both in the courtroom and for the US Air Force and USMC Art Programs where his work is part of their permanent collections.

Political satire, as free speech, has an illustrious history. The theme of our 2020 library series is Civic Engagement through the Arts: Connecting to our Community.


This event is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Greene County Council on the Arts.
