"Art After Hours: Illustrating Health"
Join us for the return of our Art After Hours series, with a tour of one of our newest exhibitions: ILLUSTRATING HEALTH.
ILLUSTRATING HEALTH delves into the often-overlooked work of medical illustrators. Medical illustrations provide insight into anatomical and physiological characteristics that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to see. Illustrations help launch new scientific discoveries and advance further knowledge about syndromes, diseases, viruses, and general health. In a partnership with Visual Integration of Science Through Art (VISTA) Center at Louisiana Tech University, LASM will mount an exhibition that explores the visual representations of diseases, everyday occurrences, and lifesaving research that affects the medical health of the members of our community.
From 6pm-8pm on Friday, December 9th, visitors will tour the exhibition, led by LASM Interim Curator Tracey Bathorst and LASM Interim Assistant Curator and Louisiana Tect alumna, Beth Welch. Tickets are $15 and free for LASM Members. Visit lasm.org for more information.
