The 2016 Brain and Mental Health Art show was a successful event! With roughly 60 submissions of brain and mental health related art, the Society for Neuroscience was able to raise over 3000$ for Ancoura, a not-for-profit society that helps subsidize housing for individuals living with mental illness. Thanks to the hard work from undergraduate and graduate volunteers, we were able to set up the big event at the Horticultural Building at Lansdowne Park that attracted about 400 guests, along with the judges that were crucial in determining this years winners. Delicious hors d’oeuvres were provided this year by the brilliant Thyme and Again!
Winners of each category are as follows:
Category: Picasso (tie): Heather J. Martelock, Title: “Inpatient” and Lenore Gale, Title: “Cold, Dark”
Category: da Vinci: Kirk Davidson, Title: “Geode”
Category: Michelangelo: Sherine Elsharnouby, Untitled
Category: van Gogh: Tony Dinh, Title: “The Power of the Mind”
The SfN Art Committee would like to extend a thank you to everyone that submitted art, volunteered and attend the event; it could not have been possible without all of you!
