Worth Checking Out This Sunday

May 22, 2010

This school year, Brown Medical Students and RISD students came together in a class called “No Innocent Eye: Knowledge and Interpretation in Art and Medicine.”

Brown’s PR people tell me the class aimed to help artists and future doctors look at their work in a new way. Class topics included pain, madness, elective amputation, and death on display.  The students also traded turns teaching each other what they knew about the human body- from figure drawings to working with a cadaver.

The artwork that emerged from their collaborations will be on display for ONE NIGHT ONLY at RISD’s Tap room (266 Benefit St., Providence)  from 6pm to 7:30pm this Sunday.

I haven’t seen the work, so I can’t vouch for the quality, but if you’re curious about what happens when artists and med students mix, come take a look.

Entrance is free and open to the public.
