Title of Program:
“Your Big Nose & My Right To Draw It:
A conversation about free speech, satire, and sensitivity”

Tête-à-Tête: An Everhart Conversation is a quarterly public program designed to spark imaginations and ignite conversation about current events. Each Everhart Tête-à-Tête discussion will focus on a topic curated by the Programming department of the Everhart, and will be led by a professional or expert in that field. These conversations will last about 1 hour and are limited in the number of seats available for the live discussion.

Our second Tête-à-Tête conversation will focus on Freedom of Speech, and will be led by artist John Kascht. John Kascht’s satirical drawings have appeared on book covers, billboards, Broadway marquees and more than a few cocktail napkins. Also, in The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Esquire, GQ, Time, Newsweek, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal, among others.

In recent years John has produced multimedia features for websites and digital publications, adding another dimension to his trademark examinations of political and celebrity culture. John’s art has been the subject of documentary segments for the Smithsonian, public television, and the Discovery Channel. Two dozen of his works are in the collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. Currently, you can see John’s retrospective show, Making Faces, on the second floor of the Everhart Museum.

Everhart Tête-à-Tête Conversations are inspired by the Everhart Museum’s book club, Everhart Reads. Everhart Reads will be reading books which correspond with our new quarterly themes, and will meet the first Thursday of each month.

Not only will our book club discussions be live-Tweeted on the first Thursday of every month, but now our quarterly Everhart Tête-à-Tête discussions will be live-streamed on Facebook! Please join us for an evening of conversation and new ideas!
