Description:

At NUPOC, science, technology and art intersect. In recognition of the artistry that is intrinsic to the allied health discipline of Prosthetics and Orthotics, NUPOC features an exhibition of oil paintings by Bruce Boyer, PhD, and sculptures by Yeongchi Wu, MD.
Bruce Boyer paints abstract works and explores juxtapositions of shape and color. This exhibition highlights five of his recent, abstract oils on canvas. Engaged in both graphic and literary expression, Dr. Boyer has written for publications that include Chicago Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor and the Chicago Tribune. He is author of a novel, The Solstice Cipher and The Natural History of the Field Museum; and co-author of Miniature Rooms, The Thorne Rooms at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Dr. Wu is a physician, researcher, patent-holding innovator and artist who sculpts and paints in many styles and media. His work has been commissioned and internationally exhibited.
Artists and Certified Prosthetists-Orthotists (CPOs) cultivate similar skills, such as training in human anatomy. Using three-dimensional artistry that bridges science and technology, CPOs fit and fabricate functional prostheses and orthoses for their patients. Visit NUPOC to see how science, technology and art intersect.
