An Evening of Art + Science 2016
Held April 21 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), this unique gala and auction showcased works of art based on the lifesaving medical research of the Taubman Scholars, who have been paired with some of the region's most talented artists to explore the process of creativity in both the studio and the laboratory.
Friends and supporters of the Taubman Institute and metro Detroit's art scene came together at a high-energy party at MOCAD to celebrate the cause of medical research. More than 20 works of art sold, all benefitting the Emerging Scholars grant program for young physician researchers.
