Edward Koren | Brattleboro Museum & Art Center | Shows | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice


Edward Koren

When: March 18-June 18 2017

Just as the celebrated New Yorker cartoonist hands over the Vermont Cartoonist Laureate, um, laurels, to Alison Bechdel, the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center has mounted “Seriously Funny,” a celebratory exhibition of his career. Known for his sweet, scratchy style and hirsute characters, Koren has lived in Brookfield for several decades. There he churns out gently amusing works based on human observations made there and in New York City. On Thursday, April 20, at 6 p.m., Brattleboro Museum chief curator Mara Williams will lead a discussion with Koren and syndicated cartoonist Jeff Danziger, who curated “Seriously Funny.” “I always felt that Ed Koren was one of the best things to happen to New York,” Danziger says, “and that Vermont was one of the best things to happen to Ed.”
