    Clinical Center Art Exhibit: “Science Related”
    July 8 – Oct. 7 & Oct. 7 – Jan. 9

    The Clinical Center will feature “Science Related” – artwork with a scientific focus or created by people with scientific and medical backgrounds.

    The exhibit will feature artists with disparate mediums: wood art and illustrations from Candice Tavares, a clinical pharmacy specialist in palliative care at Medstar Washington Hospital Center; large format botanic photographs from Amy Lamb who worked at NIH as a Post-Doctoral fellow; abstract paintings inspired by science and medicine from Michele Banks who studied at George Washington University and Harvard, paintings of historic microscopes from the Golub Collection of Antique Microscopes at UC Berkley by Sue Fierston and art from Barbara Southworth who combines her twin passions of art and science.

    View the current exhibits online and learn more about the Clinical Center Fine Arts Program (staff only).

Music in the Atrium

All patients, their families and NIH staff are invited to attend the performances in the Clinical Center atrium. The north atrium is a comfortable, welcoming gathering place at the center of the Clinical Center. These concerts are intended to support the Clinical Center's environment of care and healing. Strict social distancing measures will be maintained. Health and safety are our main concern.
