The 196th meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Tuesday,  Oct. 17, 2017 at 7pm at Parsons School of Design, 2 West 13th Street, in the Bark Room (off the lobby). Free and open to the public.

Craig Gropper on the Life and Work of William Gropper.

The artist’s grandson discusses Gropper’s art from the political cartoons to murals, and how his convictions guided his life’s work but, ultimately, cost him his livelihood.

After an accomplished career as a TV journalist, Craig Gropper decided to devote himself to the family business. He now manages his grandfather’s legacy. From the 1920s through the middle of the 20th century, artist William Gropper was one of the country’s best-known social critics. His drawings and paintings challenged the powerful on behalf of the powerless, whether featured in newspapers and magazines or in galleries and museums.
