Call For Art

Greetings!
We are collaborating again this year with Brown University’s medical school by merging art and medicine with our Call for Art about cerebrospinal fluid and connective tissue disorders. You can make a difference by creating a visual interpretation of these disorders that ultimately benefits both doctors and patients. Read more about this below.
We have another Modern Salon coming up. Karen Rand Anderson has invited us to visit her studio in which she’ll share her studio practices and start the conversation about the way we create our own art. Please RSVP to artleagueri@gmail.com if you would like to attend. Space is limited. Thanks for all your support!

The original concept and vision was created by a Rhode Island neurosurgeon, Dr. Petra Klinge.  Her vision for the exhibition is to capture through artistic renderings the “essence” of a clinical disorder, specifically those associated with cerebrospinal fluid and connective tissue disorders.  Dr. Klinge reflects upon these artworks as part of her annual medical symposium held at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and utilizes them to assist physicians and scientists to both gain a better understanding of the patient experience and create empathy for the patient’s condition. READ MORE
