The Malloy Lecture in the Arts

April 2010

2010 featured two Malloy Lectures in the Arts. In April, acclaimed American cartoonist Rosalind “Roz” Chast delighted the audience with her unique perspective on cartooning.

Since 1978, Chast has published hundreds of cartoons in The New Yorker. Her cartoons have also been published in many other magazines including Scientific American, Harvard Business Review, Redbook, and Mother Jones. Her most recent book is a comprehensive compilation of her favorite cartoons called Theories of Everything: Selected, Collected, and Health-Inspected Cartoons of Roz Chast, 1978-2006. She also illustrated The Alphabet from A to Y, with Bonus Letter, Z, the best-selling children’s book by Steve Martin.

In recognition of her work, Comics Alliance listed Chast as one of twelve women cartoonists deserving of lifetime achievement recognition. In May 2017, she received the Alumni Award for Artistic Achievement at the Rhode Island School of Design Commencement ceremony.
