From the Lab to the Museum

Plastic people!
Oh, baby, now you're such a drag
--Frank Zappa

The College of Health Sciences and the Marquette Club of Milwaukee invite you to

From the Lab to the Museum: A private tour of Marquette's Clinical Anatomy Lab and Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS 1: The Original Exhibition of Real Human Bodies

with Opening Remarks by Dr. William Cullinan, Dean, College of Health Sciences

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has posted a BODY WORLDS Reflection Paper.
The BODY WORLDS exhibition opens human bodies and exposes the interior parts of those bodies, revealing the bodily interior of the matter; matter that even though is human it does not look human, but “plastic.”

Perhaps MU needs a department for such nonmaterial concerns.
