Signe Wilkinson on being an artist in a hyper-sensitive world

In what could be a very interesting discussion, Signe Wilkinson, Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, will speak on the role and responsibilities of being an artist in today’s hyper-sensative world.

Signe Wilkinson, political cartoonist at the Philadelphia Daily News, will discuss the role and the responsibilities of artists in today’s political climate. Renata Holod, the museum’s curator of Islamic art and a Penn professor of art, will explore depictions of Muhammad throughout history. And Adnan Zulfiqar, an adjunct professor of Islam at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and dual doctorate student at Penn in law and Islamic studies, will offer a Muslim perspective on the controversy.

The lecture is free tonight at 6 p.m. Monday at the museum, 3260 South St. For information, call 215-898-4890.
