The Velaslavasay Panorama welcomes photographer and researcher Joanna Ebenstein, who has traveled the world seeking out the most fascinating, curious, and overlooked medical collections. Abounding with images and insight, Ms. Ebenstein's lecture will introduce you to the Medical Museum and its curious denizens. She will discuss the history of medical modeling, survey the great artists of the genre, and examine the other death-related arts and amusements which made up the cultural landscape at the time that these objects were originally created, collected, and exhibited. Joanna Ebenstein is a New York based artist and independent researcher. She runs the popular Morbid Anatomy Blog and the related Morbid Anatomy Library, where her privately held cabinet of curiosities and research library are made available by appointment.
