Showcasing 20th-century anatomical drawings complimented by contemporary works of art, SPLICE: At the Intersection of Art and Medicine brings together both scientific and artistic means of representing the human body. It also represents the first significant public exhibition in the United States of anatomical images selected from an extensive collection housed at Biomedical Communications, University of Toronto. The University of Toronto Art Center, the Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto, Mississauga, and the West Vancouver Museum have presented previous versions of this exhibition.

Special event opening night: Explore Asian health traditions and immortality with wild mushroom hunter Med Shroomdog at our Mushroom Tea Bar.
