My Gold Mine: David Levine Speaks about Art, Caricature, and Subjects of Our Time

Date: Sunday, November 2, 2008

John Updike wrote 30 years ago that caricaturist David Levine "is one of America's assets. In a confusing time, he bears witness. In a shoddy time, he does good work." This particularly confusing and shoddy time cries out for Levine's penetrating humor and intellect, which he dispenses in a free-form evening ranging across satire, literature, politics, science, and art, including the drawings in the exhibition A Light Touch: Exploring Humor in Drawing. Bring your insightful, irreverent, and rabble-rousing questions for this masterful observer of humanity.

About David Levine
A classically trained artist, David Levine studied painting at Pratt Institute, at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and with Hans Hofmann. His witty and revealing caricatures of presidents and poets, composers and scientists have been a highlight of The New York Review of Books for 45 years. Levine's caricatures and fine art paintings have been shown throughout the world and published in numerous books.
