“The Illustrated Courtroom” Author Elizabeth Williams joins a revered group of courtroom artists in New York June 9 at an event honoring their crucial role in chronicling courtroom history.
The National Arts Club, located at 15 Gramercy Park S in Manhattan, will host a reception for the artists, celebrating its new exhibit, which showcases some of their work through most of the month of June.
The exhibit titled, “Courtroom Art: Eyewitness for the Public,” will be displayed in the club’s Trask gallery through June 26. It features illustrations from the artists’ most famous trials, including Galella v Onassis (1973), U.S. v Helmsley (1989), U.S. v Marcos (1990), and USA v Shahzad (2010).
In addition to Williams, work from courtroom artists Christine Cornell, Aggie Kenney, Jane Rosenberg, and Richard Tomlinson is featured in the exhibit. Aggie Kenney and Richard Tomlinson also have a number of reproductions of their drawings in the book The Illustrated Courtroom.
Guests can see the exhibit during the club’s normal business hours, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday – Friday. The club is closed Saturday and Sunday.
