Miami Dade College recently hosted an interactive event with five Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonists during a celebration and panel discussion commemorating 100 years of excellence in journalism and the arts.

At MDC’s Miami Animation & Gaming International Complex (MAGIC), the artists led an impactful conversation with students in the fields of animation, mass communication and literature on how art can convey ideologies. The panel of cartoonists included Jim Morin of the Miami Herald; Joel Pett of the Lexington Herald-Leader; Steve Benson of The Arizona Register; Ann Telnaes of The Washington Post; and Paul Szep, formerly of The Boston Globe.

Besides interactive sessions, the panel discussed current events and the political process with students from MDC’s Institute for Civic Engagement and Democracy, School for Advanced Studies and New World School of the Arts.
