An Evening of Art + Science 2016
For the third consecutive year, the Taubman Institute will host "An Evening of Art + Science" to raise funds for our innovative Emerging Scholars grants.
Held at Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), this unique gala and auction will showcase works of art based on the lifesaving medical research of the Taubman Scholars, who have been paired with some of the regions' most talented artists to explore the process of creativity in both the studio and the laboratory.
Please plan to join us on April 21, 2016 to celebrate the intersecton of art and scientific discovery. Meet and mingle with leading contemporary artists and the eminent clinician-scientists of the Taubman Institute, who are leading the way toward new treatments and cures for cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, stroke and many more tough conditions.
Strolling dinner, signature cocktails, music and more will accompany the silent auction.
Ticket sales and other details are coming soon. Save the date!
