Earlier that the same day–February 4th–Jerelle Kraus will be appearing at the 92nd Street Y in Tribeca.  There are half-price tickets available for art students!  Here’s the lowdown:

In her 30 years as The New York Times art director, Jerelle Kraus observed many battles between editors and artists over the parameters of respectable journalism. Here she reveals some of the censored treasures that editors deemed too blasphemous to publish and explains how op-ed art has changed the course and purpose of illustration, and why it is more relevant and indispensable than ever. Kraus is the author of All the Art That’s Fit to Print (And Some That Wasn’t): Inside The New York Times Op-Ed Page.
