The Nationally Acclaimed American Museum of Tort Law invites you to Join Politico’s Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Matt Wuerker, and Hall of Fame The New Yorker magazine cartoonist/illustrator Barry Blitt on Saturday, June 3rd, for a special daylong Program. ‘If It Doesn’t Please the Court: Two Ink-Stained Wretches on the Art of Political Satire.’ The program will be held at Winsted United Methodist Church, 630 Main Street, Winsted.
The program will include a workshop on cartooning/illustration, led by both Wuerker and Blitt, a presentation by them, as well as Consumer Advocate and author, Ralph Nader, and a meet and greet with the speakers.
CARTOON AND ILLUSTRATION WORKSHOP 11:00am to 12:00pm
Doors open at 10:30am. Blitt and Wuerker will discuss their distinctive approaches to creating visual communication that can influence how we interpret the political landscape and challenge leadership – beyond the written word alone.
PRESENTATION 1:00pm to 2:30pm Blitt and Wuerker present their unique, provocative and evolving perspectives on how their work has changed the way we see the world. Nader will speak on the connection between political satire and the critical role that tort law plays in not only compensating victims, but also in publically disclosing wrongdoing and acting as a future deterrent. A question and answer period will follow their remarks.
MEET and GREET 2:45pm to 5:30pm at the Museum. The AMTL bookstore will be open with a special collection of illustrations and books by Blitt, Wuerker and Nader, available for purchase and autographing by the presenters.
Tickets are $10. You are welcome to come for all three programs or make your reservation for the afternoon program. Advance reservations are highly recommended. The Workshop is limited to a maximum of 50 participants. RSVP now.
