Ed Koren Wins State’s Top Arts Award

When asked for a cartoon to represent his receipt of Vermont’s highest arts award, Brookfield cartoonist Ed Koren remembered this New Yorker gem fro the 1960’s. See the print edition of The Herald for a two-page spread featuring many of Koren’s Vermont-oriented drawings. (Herald illustration by Ed Koren, Bob Eddy, and Tim Calabro)

To his Brookfield neighbors, Ed Koren might seem like a lucky guy who doesn’t need a day job, the guy who’s always out jogging or kayaking in the middle of the day, the friendly volunteer firefighter who lives in the cheerful white house in Pond Village.
