Thursday, September 11
One of the leading courtroom sketch artists, Janet Hamlin author of Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals, 2006-2013, is the main subject of a two month long exhibition at the University of Richmond, Lora Robins Galley of Design from Nature. And to open up the exhibition, at 6 pm, Hamlin will be giving a lecture in the Moot Courtroom about her time in military trials at Guantanamo Bay. The lecture is open to the public.
As one of the only sketch artists allowed to witness the 9/11 trials, since audio and recordign equipment are banned, Hamlin was presented with unique challenges in relaying some of the only visual evidence of the trials. If you're a lecture person, this is on your must see list. If you're not a lecture person, you will be after hearing this fascinating story.
Exhibit runs from Sept 11-Nov 14.
