ADVANCED MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY GIVEN A UNIQUE SPOTLIGHT THROUGH
Mission Hospital in Orange County and OCCCA to debut one-of-a-kind art exhibit of inspiring medical imagery captured in fascinating contemporary art
February 5 – 27, 2009
117 N. Sycamore, Santa Ana, CA
Opening Reception Saturday, February 7th, 6 PM to 10 PM
“This exciting exhibit combines two very different but very fascinating worlds of science and art,” said Joseph Gagliardo, executive director of imaging services and innovative technologies at Mission Hospital. “The images used in the artwork are captured by the very same imaging equipment that saves lives every day. Through this exhibit, our advanced diagnostic equipment now gives life to art, too.”
Images from Mission Hospital’s advanced technology – including 3- and 4-D ultrasound, mammography, interventional and digital radiology, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and conventional X-rays – serve as the basis of creation as OCCCA artists mold the images to their own artistic expression.
Artwork from the following OCCCA artists will be on display at “The Art of Imaging”:
Pamela Grau Twena
David B Ordaz
