Extraordinary Bodies: Mütter Museum Photographs Exhibition Opening at The Mütter Museum! Next Friday!

The photographic exhibition Extraordinary Bodies: Mütter Museum Photographs, curated by Laura Lindgren, will soon be appearing at the museum whose collection it celebrates. Originally curated to coincide with the publication of the book The Mütter Museum, this exhibition has traveled nationally since 2002, and will now be presented for the first time at the Mütter Museum. The opening party will be held next Friday, February 29th, from 6-9 PM at the Museum.

The exhibition features images that might look familiar if you were a fan of the legendary Mütter Museum Calendars. Featured photographers include Max Aguilera-Hellweg, Rosamond Purcell, William Wegman, and Joel-Peter Witkin. Their work will be supplemented by reproductions of historic photographs from the Mütter Museum's collection. Click on the invitation above for details.

More exciting (and not wholly unrelated) news: Lindgren plans to revive the Mütter Museum Calendar beginning with 2009; more on that as details become available.

Hope to see you at the opening!

I am having trouble finding the length that this exhibition is running. When does it finish?
