Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Fl. Scalpel to Sketch: the science and beauty of medical illustration at Mayo Clinic Thursday, Jul 10, 2008 through Sunday, Sep 28, 2008
This exhibition examines the vital role that medical artists and their illustrations occupy in advancing the study and practice of medicine. Medical illustrations are used by physicians to share their techniques, by researchers to find answers, by medical students to learn and by patients to understand. Mayo Clinic has one of the largest collections of medical illustration in the world with more than 60,000 pieces; about 150 of which are on display. The exhibition features original medical art rendered in a variety of media such as carbon dust, pen and ink, watercolor, airbrush and digital media. The illustrations range from interpretations of the human form to animated voyages inside the human body, studies of the brain, molecules and gene clusters, skeletons, and a rare look at the unique anatomy of conjoined twins.
