Political Cartoons: Artful Commentary - Rochester NOW Sponsored Talk
Political cartoons offer far more than chuckles. They are an intriguing form of political and social commentary through art, according to Rochester’s Elaine K. Miller. And political cartoonists are a gift to society. They're some of our best social critics.

Miller will offer her insights in “Political Cartoons: Artful Commentary” at 7 p.m. on October 21, 2014, at the Unitarian Church (220 S. Winton Road, Rochester, NY 14610). The free presentation is especially timely as this fall’s Election Day approaches.
