More Information

Pulitzer Prize-winning Artist/Illustrator
Author of Maus, In the Shadow of No Towers & Breakdowns

Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto the literature shelves. In 1992, he won the Pulitzer Prize for his masterful Holocaust narrative Maus—which portrayed Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. Maus II continued the remarkable story of his parents’ survival of the Nazi regime and their lives later in America. His comics are best known for their shifting graphic styles, their formal complexity and controversial content. Art Spiegelman will discuss Maus and its place in current global conversations in this culminating program of The Rockwell’s year of Questioning Identity.

Some aspects of the discussion may not be suitable for children. Caregiver discretion advised.

At the Hot Glass Show, watch live, narrated, glassmaking demonstrations, and see master glassblowers create stunning pieces before your eyes.
