Medical Wonder Cabinet
Friday, October 04, 2013
The New York Academy of Medicine is holding a "Festival of Medical History and the Arts" on Saturday. Journalist Lawrence Weschler will present one of his “Wonder Cabinets” – a series of panels and lectures on the body and illness.
Weschler previews the event with two participants: Jane Gauntlett, performer, writer, producer and co-founder of the Sublime & Ridiculous theater company inspired by her experience with epilepsy, and Riva Lehrer, born with spina bifida and a current artist and lecturer in anatomy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
