In The Press: Marilyn Church in The New York Times

October 27, 2010

The courtroom sketch artist and SVA alumnus Marilyn Church (1973 Illustration) has been depicting courtroom scenes since she left the College. In a recent feature in The New York Times, Joseph Berger describes the celebrities, controversies and criminals Church has sketched over the past few decades. “There is an art to her art,” Berger writes. “Knowing, for example, how to telescope a scene so defendants, witnesses and lawyers are grouped in the foreground, creating an encompassing summation of sorts for TV viewers, yet being journalistically honest.” The article also highlights the recent purchase of the majority of Church’s courtroom work by the Library of Congress.
