On June 8, 1968, three days after he was assassinated, a funeral train carried the remains of senator and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy from New York City to Washington, DC. A new exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art presents works by three artists who captured images of the mourners, gathered accounts from eyewitnesses and recreated the train's journey on film from "the dead man's point of view." We discuss 'The Train: RFK's Last Journey' with its curators.
