The Evolution of the Times’ Op-Ed page with Art Directors J-C Suares, Jerelle Kraus and Artist Brad Holland
Suares, Kraus and Holland will discuss the beginnings, the development and the current state of The New York Times’ Op-Ed page, whose illustrations started to revolutionize journalism in the 1970s. The lecture will focus on the Op-Ed’s use of illustration over the years, how illustration is commissioned and why, the artists that helped create its image and the importance of message-driven illustration.
Moderated and coordinated by Fernanda Cohen.
The lecture will be followed by book signings by all three authors.
Limited to 120 people.
