What happens at the intersection of art and public health? How can historical cartoons inspire new artistic interpretations and creations today?

Join NYC-based artist and educator, Kriota Willberg, as she provides an overview of graphic medicine and the RIT workshop she led during Fall 2020, “Graphic Medicine in a Pandemic.” Highlighting the collaboration with RIT Archives and the use of historic cartoons from the digital exhibit, “Epidemics, Economics, and Elections:  The editorial cartoons of John Scott Clubb and Elmer Messner,” Willberg will showcase RIT students’ work from this unique course that will be offered again in Fall 2021.  Her presentation will be followed by a lively Q&A and discussion.
