The Art of Medicine Gala will be held on October 20, 2017 at the Orlando Museum of Art. Presented by First Green Bank and The Collage Companies, proceeds from the Art of Medicine Gala will benefit the University of Florida TRAuma, Concussion, and Sports Neuromedicine Program (UF TRACS) supporting care and research for patients with Traumatic Brain Injury. The Art of Medicine Foundation invited healthcare professionals and brain injury survivors from across the county to submit their visual artwork for consideration to be included in the Art of Medicine Gala Art Show and Auction. From the any talented entries, we selected six featured artists whose artwork will be highlighted in the LIVE AUCTION. In addition we will be showcasing artwork from over 20 other talented artists in the SILENT AUCTION.
This artful evening kicks off at 6pm with the Kessler Reception where sponsors and their guests are treated to an exclusive, private performance by Orlando Ballet. The main event doors open at 7pm where you enjoy special access to the Orlando Museum of Art and a chance to mingle with our featured artists whose work will be included in the Art Show and Auction.
