Reginald Rose’s timeless American classic finds twelve strangers sequestered in the jurors’ room as they review and discuss the evidence from a murder trial in which a young man has been accused of killing his own father. With the boy’s life at stake, the jury’s charge is not as simple as it first seems. Emotions run high as the jury forman seeks true justice in the unanimous decision needed.

Student artists work outdoors

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

Two students sit on the lawn under a shade tree producing artwork. One uses a clay tool to create impressions in the soft coils of a ceramic piece. The other sits with large sheets of two-dimensional artwork. Behind them, a dog chained to the tree is barely noticeable. A hand holding a lit cigarette is visible on the bottom right. This scene is set beside a road with a concrete structure in the background. Can you identify when and where this photo was taken or who is in it? Please share your comments and memories below.
