This week we tried something a little different. A couple weeks ago Jonathan Bastian interviewed Marc Murphy, the editorial cartoonist for the Courier Journal, about his style and process as an event to pair with the On the Strip exhibit at PUBLIC gallery. This week’s show paired clips from that interview with a few songs inspired by his political cartoons.https://lvaapublic.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/public-2-28-14.mp3
Marc Murphy’s editorial cartoons are published 5 times each week in the Louisville Courier-Journal and at courier-journal.com. They are reproduced in Gannett newspapers around the country. He is also a practicing trial attorney in federal and state courts. His mother was an accordion player and his father hosted dance parties on TV, and it is entirely possible his art is an effort to deal with this. It is, at a minimum, not out of the question.
He was raised in Northeastern Kentucky, attended Notre Dame, served in the Army in Germany and Central America, and held political office in Louisville. He is a liberal. Or a progressive. Or both.
