An Evening of Art & Science: Gala and Auction to Showcase New Works of Art Inspired by Eminent Medical Researchers
Detroit — Some virtuosos express their talents through clay, paint, wood, words or dance. For others, the media are the very cells and molecules of the human body.
Each expert excels in his or her chosen field, and on one unprecedented night in May, they will come together in Detroit for a gala celebration: An Evening of Art + Science.
This unique fundraising event will unveil the works inspired by the pairing of 11 physician-researchers of the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute with noted artists from the Detroit area and beyond. For months, the artists have been meeting with their medical counterparts to discuss the creativity that abounds in their respective disciplines, and to gain ideas and inspiration from the medical research being conducted by these dedicated clinician-scientists from the University of Michigan.
On May 22, the results will be revealed when the scientists, the artists and supporters come together at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) to discuss the collaborations. (more…)
