The New Yorker
art editor, Françoise Mouly and Pulitzer-Prize winner Art Spiegelman are the lifelong collaborators who catapulted comics and the graphic novel into the high-octane literary genre it is today. Spiegelman is best known for his Holocaust narratives Maus I and II and Mouly for overseeing the production of more than 1,000 New Yorker covers. Together in 1983 they launched RAW, the acclaimed avant-garde comics magazine and anthology. They also created and work on the New York Times-bestselling Little Lit series and TOON Books, an award-winning comics imprint for early readers. The couple will discuss their work, process, and collaborations in a lively conversation that touches on how artful text and image can raise social consciousness.

The Katonah Museum of Art’s Himmel Award and Lecture is an annual event in recognition of creators, conceivers, radical thinkers, and risk-takers that provoke new thinking in art and design. The Award is named in honor of Betty Himmel, who has been instrumental in defining the direction and mission of the Katonah Museum of Art and continues to be an arts advocate and community leader.
