Madison Central Library artist-in-residence exploring emotions, trauma through cartoons

The Bubbler at Madison’s Central Library is hosting an artist in residence who is using art to explore our emotions and how we cope with trauma.

Illustrator and animator Rodney Lambright II’s “Unwanted Sympathy” exhibition examines how animation and different forms of art can help a person dive into what they’re feeling.

“Cartoons come as being for kids, but adults make them,” Lambright II said Monday morning on News 3 This Morning. “So they’re telling their stories, and I think cartoons do a good job of telling messages in a metaphorical way and can take you to spaces you can’t in real life.”

Lambright II is hosting a workshop at The Bubbler on Saturday, February 9th for people of all ages who want to learn more about expressing themselves through animation.

“I’ve learned a lot about myself. I think that the concept of going into your psyche and understanding the things you don’t want to deal with is something that has been really exciting to explore, and it tells me more about myself,” said Lambright II.

He also holds open studios at The Bubbler from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays.
