“No red carpet stalker has observed celebrities more closely than caricature artist John Kascht.”
– WENDY WICK REAVES, curator at The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery
John Kascht’s satirical portraits have appeared in almost every publication you can think of, and on book covers, billboards and Broadway marquees. His work is in the collection of the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery and has been the subject of documentaries for public television and The DIscovery Channel.
At 7PM on June 12th, in a free public presentation sponsored by Roots & Rhythm, John will show how he creates hisexaggerated portraits, and share anecdotes from a career spent illustrating the famous and infamous. He will also preview his poster for the 10th Anniversary of the Roots & Rhythm festival, featuring caricatures of 50 musicians who shaped American music.
