Evening of Art + Science a rousing success!
On a glorious spring evening in Detroit, the worlds of medical research and artistic endeavor met at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) to showcase the results of a unique collaboration between Taubman Institute scientists and some of today's most bold and talented artists.
Dozens of art enthusiasts and supporters of medical science turned out to meet, mingle, dine and to admire the amazing creations which were auctioned to benefit the medical research supported by the institute.
Camaraderie, cuisine, creativity and cocktails reigned throughout this delightful event.
And the proceeds will allow us to expand the ranks of our innovative Taubman Emerging Scholars Program, which ensures the next generation of extraordinary young clinician-scientists won’t be lost to research for lack of funding.
Our deepest thanks to everyone who participated, contributed, created and partied to help make the Evening of Art + Science a wonderfully successful project.
Together, we are making a difference.
