Flesh and Bones: The Art of Anatomy

Exhibition Website

Feb 22 2022 - Jul 10 2022

Focused at the intersection of science and art, this exhibition explores themes of art and anatomy from the 16th century to today. 

From spectacular life-size illustrations to delicate paper flaps that lift to reveal the body's interior, the structure of the body is represented through a range of media. 

Artists not only helped create these images but were part of the market for them, as anatomy was a basic component of artistic training for centuries.
