Celebrate Dittrick Museum’s gallery renovations at Oct. 3 reception

Re-conceiving BirthThe Dittrick Medical History Center—an interdisciplinary study center within the College of Arts and Sciences of Case Western Reserve University—will host a wine and cheese reception at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3.

The reception will celebrate the completion of phase I of the main gallery renovation, featuring the history of childbirth. Brandy Schillace curated the first component, titled “Re-conceiving Birth: Our Shared Entrance to the World Stage.”

This display begins the museum’s exploration of how birth has been altered and shaped over time by new technologies and issues of gender. Cleveland Institute of Art biomedical art major Emily Hromi assisted with the display.

The event will begin with a gallery talk by Schillace, followed by a wine and cheese reception, during which visitors will be able to see other museum exhibits.

RSVP by Sept. 30 to Jennifer Nieves at jks4@case.edu or by calling 216.368.3648.
