The Editorial Work of Adam Zyglis

September 1, 2017 - November 9, 2017

Nichols School Gallery at the Glenn and Awdry Flickinger Performing Arts Center

Reception for the Artist on October 19

from 6 - 8 p.m.

Adam Zyglis is the Pulizter Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for The Buffalo News, his hometown newspaper. At just 22 years old, Zyglis became the staff cartoonist for The News in August of 2004. Since then, his cartoons have become syndicated through Cagle Cartoons and have appeared in publications including The Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek, The New York Times and Los Angeles Times. "Editorial cartoons have long occupied a unique and important place in America. The ability of a visual satirist to freely take aim at corruption and abuse of power is a direct gauge of a country's democracy. It is more important now, perhaps more than ever before, to support strong and biting visual satire during this time of political turbulence."

The show is free, open to the public and sponsored by the Colby Art Fund.
