February 2002 AAOS Report
Emotion Pictures helps promote Bone and Joint Decade worldwide
A project of the U.S. Bone and Joint Decade, "eMotion Pictures: An Exhibition of Orthopaedics in Art," continues its world tour throughout 2002. The 165 works of art, created by orthopaedists and their patients, children and adults, will appear at the United Nations in New York City, through Feb. 28. More than 700 people attended the opening night party at the UN, including Mrs. Nane Annon, wife of the UN Secretary General; Bruce Browner, MD, from the Bone and Joint Decade International Steering Committee; and Alexandre Sidorenko, chief of the UN Programme on Aging. From March 15 to Aug. 15, the exhibition will be on display in Washington D.C., at the National Museum of Health and Medicine. From April 5 to 12, nearly 100 pieces from eMotion Pictures will be featured in Madrid, Spain at the World Congress on Aging. For two months in the Fall, the exhibition will stand in the Brunnier Art Museum at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. Then it will move to Minneapolis, where it will appear in the Minnesota Government Center, and toward the end of the year, it will displayed in Tyler, Texas, at the Tyler Museum of Art.
