Illustrating Health will delve into the often-overlooked work of medical illustrators. Medical illustrations provide insight into anatomical and physiological characteristics that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to see. Illustrations help launch new scientific discoveries and advance further knowledge about syndromes, diseases, viruses, and general health. In a partnership with Visual Integration of Science Through Art (VISTA) Center at Louisiana Tech University, LASM will mount an exhibition that explores the visual representations of diseases, everyday occurrences, and lifesaving research that affects the medical health of the members of our community.
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum's annual exhibition program, including the presentation of Illustrating Health, is generously sponsored by Entergy.
Illustrating Health is also generously supported by Louisiana Tech University, The Rockefeller Foundation, The Lincoln Health Foundation, The Health Hut, and Louisiana GEAR UP.
