I am very happy to announce that MEDinART, participated in this wonderful Vesalius Symposium with the new MEDinART video! MEDinART video has been screened during the Symposium and the audience admired selected work of approximately 90 contemporary artists whose work is featured in MEDinART gallery. All these artists, and “citizens” of MEDinART land, following the spirit of the great anatomists Andreas Vesalius, they share the same vision and passion to understand human body in all of its range.

Here are some shots from the event:
