A one-night event at Medicine Fac­tory com­mem­o­rates the year when lo­cal artist Ham­lett Dob­bins so­journed as a re­cip­i­ent of the Rome Prize in 2013-14 and the Sun­day morn­ings that he spent at the Baroque church of Sant’ivo alla Sapienza. The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes a se­lec­tion from the hun­dreds of line draw­ings he ex­e­cuted while vis­it­ing the church and the re­lease of a book, “Sant’ivo June 29, 2014,” which con­tains all the pieces he did that day. 6-9 p.m. 85 Vir­ginia W.

The col­lec­tion was taken down af­ter we de­ter­mined that the im­agery was in­ap­pro­pri­ate for a gen­eral pub­lic au­di­ence and specif­i­cally fam­i­lies with young chil­dren who make up a sig­nif­i­cant seg­ment of our pa­trons.” Rojo will talk about the in­ci­dent in­volv­ing his long se­ries of paint­ings — de­pict­ing women in guises as god­desses, mys­tics, brides, wan­tons and vic­tims — as well as other aspects of his new work at Cir­cuitous Suc­ces­sion Gallery.
