CityArts Gallery is open for the Brain Art Fair Saturday March 11 at the CityArts Gallery. Submissions are sought for brain-related art from artists of all ages. Any and all forms of artistic expression are invited. Register online by March 8 at this link.

Youth artists especially are welcome and will be entered for a chance to win a prize.  The Brain Art Fair is organized by graduate students from Brown University’s Neuroscience Graduate Program (NSGP) students in conjunction with Brain Week RI.

The fair promotes creative expression of the mind and brain through pictorial and artistic representation. Exploring the different ways youth and artists understand the brain and its many facets further inspires the spirit of inquiry, supporting the links between arts and sciences, and making both more accessible to all.
