I just received a most exciting email from Lindsey Thieman, Manager of Exhibits & Programs at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago. Seems they are putting out a call for proposals for their ongoing “Anatomy in the Gallery" exhibition program, which seeks to showcase contemporary art dealing with medicine. Here are the details:
“Anatomy in the Gallery,” a rotating exhibition program at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, showcases medically themed contemporary art within the unique context of the Museum’s historical collections and exhibits. The program was begun in 1998 to help fulfill the Museum’s mission of enriching its visitors’ lives by enhancing their knowledge and understanding of surgery and related sciences. “Anatomy in the Gallery” is will be accepting proposals for its 2010 exhibition calendar until April 17, 2009. The medical theme is open to interpretation, but figure studies without additional medical content do not qualify. For complete submission and exhibition details, click here.
