Small World Big World Logo

On display will be the exhibit of winning images from Nikon’s 2013 Small World photography contest. These photos provide the viewer with a glimpse into a world so small it can only be viewed through the lens of a microscope.

Also, for one night only, The Wistar Institute’s collection of large-scale anatomical sculptures constructed by William Rush will be on display. Dr. Caspar Wistar, our Institute’s namesake, used these early 19th-century models to help illustrate comparative anatomy in his medical lectures.

RSVP by 1/27/14
