Calling All Artists!

We're looking for right brains!

Ready to Branch Out?  Introducing a unique and exclusive fundraising experience that blurs the line between art, tech, and neuroscience.


Brain research gets a little “science-y”.  We decided to flip it on its head and turn to art to help interpret it. 

Your Brain on Art partners creative minds with scientific brains.  Artists have the opportunity to connect with Neuroscientists to learn more about their research and how it relates to NeuroCAM (Neuroscience + Complimentary and Alternative Modalities). 

The challenge?  Artists are asked to reflect on the science project of their choice and visually illuminate the research in a new and exciting way! Create a new piece OR match an existing piece of artwork.
