It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since Street Anatomy began as a small medical illustration blog. Each year I’ve seen it grow exponentially all thanks to our wonderful audience and the amazing artists who use human anatomy in their art.
I want to thank each and every one of you for following Street Anatomy and for supporting us in bringing you the best anatomical art out there from all over the world!!
This past year brought us a very successful gallery show, OBJECTIFY THIS: Female Anatomy Dissected and Displayed, numerous features and interviews in blogs, an expanded gallery store, and increasing relationships with many anatomical artists.
But, rather than make this about reminiscing, I’m going to take you forward to where Street Anatomy is headed. We have so many exciting projects coming up in the next few months that I’ll preview for you below! You’ll hear more about these projects in the days and weeks ahead, so stay tuned!
Street Anatomy website redesign
After showcasing anatomical art for the past 5 years, I am redesigning Street Anatomy into an easily scannable and searchable responsive grid layout. It will be a beautiful experience across your mobile device, iPad/tablet, and desktop! I’ll also be adding street art and tattoo gallery pages, an exhibition section, featured artists section, and much more!
Valentine’s Day Anatomical Heart Pop-Up Shop
Street Anatomy will be participating in an anatomical heart Valentines pop up shop in London, put on by the delectable Miss Cakehead of Eat Your Heart Out and medical illustrator, Emily Evans. The pop up shop, held in a secret London location, will feature products with anatomical hearts just in time to give to your love on Valentine’s Day.
Dissecting Art, Intersecting Anatomy Exhibition
Street Anatomy is co-curating a group exhibition in Chicago called Dissecting Art, Intersecting Anatomy: Merging contemporary art with the works of Pauline Lariviere. The exhibition is an homage to Pauline Lariviere (1906–1988), a French-Canadian artist whose fame came from her extensive and groundbreaking work in medical and anatomical illustration. We’ll be bringing in the anatomical art of 10 extraordinary artists from around the world!
SXSW Street Anatomy Panel Speaker
Street Anatomy will be teaming up with Tristen George, Creative Director at the pharma ad agency AbelsonTaylor, to speak about Presenting Complex Information with Simplicity.
