James Thurber’s Influence on Modern Cartoons

Oct 2, 2019

"It’s not the ink—it’s the think that makes a cartoon,” wrote longtime cartoon editor for “The New Yorker” magazine, Robert Mankoff.

That’s fitting with James Thurber’s style and what he brought to cartooning in the 20th century, according to scholar Michael Rosen.

Earlier this year, Classical 101 and the Columbus Museum of Art collaborated for Portraits of Langston, a program featuring music by composers Valerie Coleman and William Grant Still. This weekend, Classical 101 is broadcasting some highlights from that concert.

All around the city, Columbus has been celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance in a big way.

As the commemorative events draw to a close later this month, Classical 101 and the Columbus Museum of Art are joining forces Saturday, Jan. 12 for Portraits of Langston, a program featuring music by two groundbreaking composers – one contemporary, one historical.

Outlandish? Why, yes! But it happened right here in the Classical 101 studio yesterday afternoon, when Carpe Diem String Quartet stopped by on the eve of their first concert of the 2018-19 season – a season packed with a new concert series, a new performance home and a whole bunch of other new stuff to boot.

It's a torrid late-summer day as I type these lines. I equate the cooler weather and the longer evenings with opening nights!

Columbus looks forward to plenty of first nights in the next several weeks, as the new arts season begins.

Some years ago, violinist Charles Weatherbee made a simple, but profound statement during an interview. Carpe Diem String Quartet was to perform at the Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus downtown.

When I asked him what had sparked the quartet's interest in the venue and in their adventurous programming, he said, "If we want people to step into our (classical music) world, we must be willing to step into theirs."

Adventurous programming and unusual venues are the norm for the musicians performing in this year's VIVO Music Festival, Aug. 30 through Sept. 3.

The Columbus Museum of Art celebrates an anniversary Thursday. It’s been a year since the Margaret Walter Wing opened to the public.

Museum executive director Nanette Maciejunes says the new addition has been a fabulous success.

In late 1903, Pablo Picasso was living and working in Barcelona and still mourning the loss of his dear friend Carlos Casagemas. For nearly four years, the artist painted in somber, subdued tones of washed-out blue and sickly yellows. He even painted posthumous portraits of his longtime friend.
