Portraits of a Lady
Monday, September 22
On a single day in October 2006, a historic painting session took place with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor sitting for 25 artists. This film reveals the charm and wit of Justice O’Connor, telling stories, bantering with the artists and the group’s maestros, David Levine and Aaron Shikler, while following the progress of the artists as they each complete their portrait for a show at the National Portrait Gallery. The film ends with the exhibit’s opening night reception and the question: “Do we really know what our founding fathers looked like?” Featured speaker: Walter Bernard, Producer
