Art as a Weapon
Presented by Eric Drooker
90 minute interactive workshop
Eric Drooker’s slide presentation “Art as a Weapon,” is a favorite event at colleges and universities. As he examines the language of art and visual narrative, Drooker explores his early years as a street artist in New York City, through a memorable series of images which trace the evolution of his graphic novels into animated films—and from his cover paintings of The New Yorker, to his slow infiltration of the mainstream. The role of artist as activist—and the power of street art in the digital age—are examined in detail, with hundreds of Drooker’s projected images, and often humorous commentary.
The artist accompanies his slide sequences on various musical instruments.
