Due to the visibility of their work, political cartoonists have been at the forefront of responding to Donald Trump's presidency. Published in newspapers, magazines, and online forums, these artists have already been responsible for creating indelible images of President Trump and commenting on his vision of the world. Join us for a discussion with some of today's most thoughtful -- and provocative -- cartoonists and artists.
