Princeton, NJ – On Saturday, March 24, 2012 from 4 – 6 PM, the Arts Council of Princeton will present a free illustrated lecture and opening reception for its special exhibition “Arnold Roth: A Selection of Work from Area Collections.”
The lecture features celebrated cartoonist Arnold Roth and will be followed by a reception where the public will have an opportunity to meet Mr. Roth and have him autograph books of his work. The exhibition, featuring original works by Roth on loan from Princeton collectors and friends of the artist, will be on view at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts from March 24 – April 7, 2012. Arnold Roth, who resides in Manhattan but lived in Princeton from 1963 to 1984, has had his cartoons appear in the New Yorker (including many covers), Esquire, Playboy, GQ, TIME, Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, and many, many more. He has published six books of cartoons and has illustrated books by such authors as George Plimpton, William F. Buckley, Jr., and Clifton Fadiman. He has had solo exhibitions at numerous museums and galleries and has appeared on the David Letterman Show, the Joan Rivers Show, and the Today Show.
George Plimpton said of him: "Arnold Roth is surely the most imaginative and humorous graphic artists of this or any other day."
