MICA presents Alberto Cairo, author of The Functional Art and The Truthful Art, and his Visual Trumpery Tour.

Alberto Cairo's Visual Trumpery Tour could not come at a more relevant time where "fake news", lies, and videotape are opening the cracks of our nation wide open, exposing the underbelly of our media, politics, corporations, and legal system. The English word "trumpery" means worthless nonsense, something that is showy and deceitful at the same time. Trumpery can occur in text, verbally, or visually. Cairo's non-partisan talk focuses on the visual, examining misleading charts, graphs, and data maps designed by individuals and organizations from across the political spectrum.
