To be presented in conjunction with Symposium 2000: World Peace Through Reverence for Life, this exhibition features pen-and-ink drawings by Dr. Frederick Franck, who served on the medical staff of the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, Gabon, Africa, from 1958 until 1961. Characterized by their direct, spontaneous line, and by Franck’s compassion and humanity, the thirty-two works illustrate life at this progressive hospital.
