Since before the days of Leonardo, artists and scientists have explored the complexity of the life sciences together, portraying human anatomy in health and disease. Philadelphia, the birthplace of both art and medicine in America, has played an important role in this history. Today, advances in technology are revolutionizing the interdisciplinary profession of artistic life scientists, now known as medical illustrators.

Wistar Director of Library Services & Archivist Nina Long will be presenting on how this visual journey reflects our cultural history and trace the evolution from classical illustration to today’s medical illustration.

This event is $10/person.
