Douglass Starr, Edward Stitt, Lisa Nilsson, & Ann Zumwalt will present "Seeing the Unseen: An Evening Conversation with Artists, Anatomists, & Instructors" as part of "Teaching the Body: Artistic Anatomy in the American Academy, from Copley, Rimmer, and Eakins to Contemporary Artists." Teaching the Body explores the intersections between the fields of art and medicine and contextualizes the study of artistic anatomy within American art academies in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, from the first anatomy text of John Singleton Copley, created in 1756, to the contemporary works of Kiki Smith and others. The event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Graduate Student Organization.
