Once a semester I try to get out of Oshkosh and make a mini road trip. I think I’ve found what I want to do. The Science Museum of Minnesota is hosting Gunther von Hagens exhibit “Body Worlds.” This contraversial German doctor from the former Deutsche Demokratische Republik perfected plastination for education purposes. He discovered, however, that his life’s calling for creating medical specimens held the macabre interest of the common man. With donated corpses preserved, flayed, and masterfully posed Body Worlds creator Gunther von Hagens has created one of the most intruiging and contraversial modern art exhibitions. If you are interested in this experience please contact me through the comments.
