MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!
About the guests of honor: Art and medicine have shared a close relationship in a variety of ways for centuries. At the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, medical student siblings, Rachael Lambin and John-Henry Lambin, share more than just the same book titles in their backpacks, but also a shared passion for both art and medicine. The Lambins, along with their mom, Debbie, are the artists behind a local book sculpting business, called My Thousand Words. Rachael says "the name comes from the saying that a picture, or in our case, a sculpture, is worth a thousand words, and books are comprised of thousands of words."
About the artwork display: Rachael's Gray's Anatomy-inspired skeletal sculpture is on display at Plumas Bank throughout July and can be seen during bank hours, Monday - Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. At the conclusion of Reno's Artown festivities, the Lambins will be donating the sculpture to the UNR Med Savitt Medical Library. Gray's Anatomy is a historic and renowned textbook of human anatomy originally written by Henry Gray in 1958. The book is an extremely influential work in medical education and has continued to be revised and republished to present day.
