Hope Happens for Neurological Disorders proudly announces Where Art Meets Science at the Duane Reed Gallery in St. Louis’ Central West End on February 3rd and 4th, 2012.  This cutting-edge art exhibition will feature an exciting collaboration by international renowned photographer Michael Eastman and researchers from the Hope Center for Neurological Disorders at Washington University School of Medicine.  For the first time, Hope Center scientists have the opportunity to collaborate with artist Michael Eastman, who transforms their scientific images into abstract works of art.

St. Louis native Michael Eastman has established himself as one of the world’s leading contemporary photographic artists.  His photographs have appeared in Time, Life, and American Photographer.  They currently reside in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and other prestigious institutions.  His books include Havana (2011, Prestel), Vanishing America (2008, Rizzoli) and Horses (2003, Knopf), which is now in its fifth edition.

Where Science Meets Art will kick off with a private reception on Friday, February 3rd in honor of Hope Happens’ Hope Society members and will open to the public on Saturday, February 4th, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information, contact Gabriela Inderweis, Development Officer, at (314) 725-3888, e-mail gabriela@hopehappens.org or visit the Hope Happens website at www.hopehappens.org.
