The first public showing of artwork by Miriam Hyman, a young woman who was tragically killed in the London bombings on 7 July 2005, is taking place at City Hall.
Miriam was killed at the age of 32 in the London bus bomb attack in Tavistock Square. A picture researcher by profession, she was also a talented artist.
The MIMENTO exhibition will mark her memory, celebrate her work and raise awareness of the Miriam Hyman Memorial Fund, which is working with the charity ORBIS UK to improve the sight-saving skills of eye-care specialists in the developing world.
The fund - launched in November 2005 by her family and friends - has already provided training to an ophthalmic paediatrician from India and will train many more eye-care specialists in the future.
