With a clever wink and a nod to its ultra-timeliness during this election year, “Where the Truth Lies: A Symposium on Propaganda Today” is an all-day conference on February 15 at the City University of New York. Organized by Steven Heller, Stuart Ewen and Mary Jeys, “Lies” will examine where the truth ends and where the spin begins.

Renowned food critic Milton Glaser delivers the keynote for a fun-filled lineup moderated by David Brancaccio of the PBS show “NOW,” and throughout the day there will also be propaganda films curated by Jeys. And how about that poster design, by Michael J. Walsh, Brian E. Smith, with photography by Harry Zernike? We feel ourselves sweating and blinking nervously just looking at it.
