Our own Steve Kline CMG and a trained docent at the Library of Congress (LOC)  has offered to lead a group of CMG's and CMG  candidates on a tour  through one of the two  exhibits known  as " Drawing Justice the Art of Courtroom Illustration”   The exhibit showcases 98 out  of the  thousands of the LOC’s extensive collection of Courtroom  Art illustrated by some of America’s best artists  who were hired by newspapers and television networks  to capture special  moments from some of America’s most sensational  trials taking place during the  last 50 years. This occurred because TV cameras and still cameras  were barred at this time from most courtrooms in the country,  and  these illustrations replaced the television and still camera shots in the courtroom on the 6:00pm news and the covers of your newspapers. 

The second exhibit  adjacent to “Drawing Justice” is another new and popular exhibit  entitled “Echoes of the Great War- American Experiences of World War 1.” This incredible exhibit which is at the entrance to the Pavilion housing the Jefferson Library and Drawing Justice, teaches  through incredible showcases of photographs,  documents and videos about  the American experience of living thru World War 1. 
 Steve  is arranging for one or more docents trained in this exhibit to take the group thru World War 1 as Steve was trained to guide groups through "Drawing Justice." 
Since some of the physical space to guide and to engage a group is limited, we can only accommodate 20 CMG and CMG Candidates on this tour and will be hopefully dividing the group into two groups of 10 each so that everyone has  the best chance to see each exhibit and to engage each docent
