PEN DIY with Molly Crabapple: How to Draw the Elephant in the Room
Nov 2, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| 10/8
PEN is thrilled to welcome artist and writer Molly Crabapple for the third installment of PEN’s fall DIY season. Described as “God’s own circus posters,” by Rolling Stone, Molly’s work engages injustice and rebellion beneath the lavishly detailed surface. In 2015, Molly Crabapple was awarded Yale Poynter Fellowship, and received a Front Page Award for her art of rebel-held Aleppo. Her art also earned her a 2014 Gold Rush award, and she was shortlisted for a 2013 Frontline Print Journalism Award for her internationally-acclaimed reportage on Guantanamo Bay. Her memoir, Drawing Blood, will be published by HarperCollins on December 1. Building on oral traditions, parables, and the rich history of artists as storytellers, PEN DIY celebrates how literature can be approachable yet unexpected, and how it can help us make sense of our lives.
