TALK THE TALK is a new lecture series in which we’ve invited regional Western New York artists to present talks on other WNY artists, living or dead. We asked them to select artists they admire, artists who may have inspired them, artists whose work speaks to them sufficiently that they can then speak to us about them.

We live in a time where what is truth and what is fact does not always coincide, a time when journalism is as important as ever and all facts matter.

Andrea Mancuso will talk about the work of Adam Zyglis; a first amendment advocate, a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Buffalo News, and a Buffalo native. Mancuso will highlight the work that Zyglis has done in supporting the first amendment and the rights of editorial cartoonists. Andrea Mancuso is an artist, cofounder of the collective virocode and an educator teaching art at Nichols School in Buffalo.
