We are pleased to announce the opening of our Spring 2019 exhibit, The Artist is In: A Visual Retrospective of Research, Education and Invention. The exhibit explores the role of art and illustration in formal health sciences education, in the development of new devices and techniques, and in the professional and leisure activities of health professionals. Curated by Historical Collections & Archives assistant John Esh, this exhibit draws together such varied artwork as medical illustrations, watercolor landscapes, and class notebook marginalia to highlight the many ways that art has informed the health sciences at OHSU.
