Students’ art part of ‘Grossology’ at Imagination Station

“More Eyeballs,” “Section of the Neck” and “Relax” are a few of the 11 works of art by UT students on display in “Grossology” at Imagination Station, the hands-on science center in downtown Toledo.

Art by UT students is on display at Imagination Station as part of the “Grossology” exhibit, which continues through Monday, Sept. 2.

Using the book Gray’s Anatomy as inspiration, students in the Lithography class taught by Arturo Rodriguez, associate professor of art, and the Anatomy class taught by Ben Pond, art lecturer and director of the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery, collaborated on a large, bound book project called Gross Anatomy.

Students used lithography as the basis for their initial drawings and then embellished the pages with additional drawing media.

Two copies of the large book were created, and another series of prints was made for display. One book was donated to Mulford Library on UT’s Health Science Campus, and the other was given to the Toledo Museum of Art library, where it is on view. The project was completed last fall.

Works on display at Imagination Station were created by Alyssa Brown, Stacey Cruzado, Sarah Emch, David Folck, Lisa Franko, Wes Rucker, Dylan Gallagher, Katie Heft, Dingzhong Hu, Josh Klein and Shirley Mei.

The artwork by UT students can be seen in “Grossology” through Monday, Sept. 2.
