Let me Draw You a Picture: A Conversation with Bob Englehart
If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is an editorial cartoon worth? Editorial cartoonists have been keeping us entertained and well informed for centuries. Their witty visual commentary can be powerful conversation starters, make us consider issues from new perspectives, or help us visualize what we were already thinking! Bob Englehart was the Hartford Courant’s editorial cartoonist for 35 years, as well as a Pulitzer Prize finalist for the Editorial Cartoon category. His work played an integral part in how the public engage with Connecticut politics and news. Join CT’s Old State and Bob for a conversation about the state of political cartoons and other forms of artistic political expressions today.
