Surveying the Interstices of Art and Medicine, Death and Culture
[By Ann Miller RN MHA]
Since 2007, Morbid Anatomy has been excavating and celebrating the obscure, the forgotten and the macabre via a blog, lecture series, workshops, parties, and open to the public research library. They are now taking Morbid Anatomy to the next level with the creation of The Morbid Anatomy Museum: a new 4,200 square foot non-profit institution opened in April 2014.
Morbid Anatomy Museum
The Morbid Anatomy Museum features a much expanded lecture/workshop space, a bar/cafe, a gift shop, an expanded library and permanent collection and temporary exhibition space where they showcase, among other things, the eccentric taxidermy of Walter Potter, the art of death and 17th Century Dutch “artist of death” Frederik Ruysch among others.
Much like this ME-P, Morbid Anatomy will never appeal to a mass market. This, we believe, is part of its charm.
Note: Graphic content but well worth a look!
