The exhibit will be shown as part of Durham Cathedral's celebrations of the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. Founded in 1093, Durham Cathedral -which houses Galilee Chapel, is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Richard Lynn Studham first joined McGill in 1969, where he taught ceramics, drawing, painting and foundation courses with the Department of Art Education. From 1983 to 1990 he was chair of the Department, and in 2009 received the honorific of Emeritus Professor in recognition of his meritorious service to the University.
