Des Moines, WA (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
Political cartoonist Milt Priggee will examine “Political Cartooning: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” at Wesley Homes Des Moines on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. The public is welcome. RSVP online at http://www.wesleyhomes.org or call 206-824-5000.
Because there are no longer any staff editorial cartoonists at newspapers anywhere in Washington State, Priggee’s discussion will focus on political commentary as it evolves from print to digital-media platforms and the impact of this change. He will also explore the stories behind the art and the importance of political cartooning as a medium.
“Political Cartooning: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” is presented by SouthWest King School Retirees’ Association.
