Perfect Vessels, photography by David Orr

Opening Reception: July 14, 2016 from 6 - 8pm

The Mütter Museum presents Perfect Vessels, a brand new exhibition by LA-based artist and photographer David Orr, inspired by the Museum’s renowned Hyrtl Skull Collection.

In Perfect Vessels, Orr uses symmetry to explore aesthetic and cultural ideals of perfection by photographing a human skull facing his lens, then mirroring half to transform it into a perfectly balanced memento mori.

The Mütter Museum helps the public appreciate the mysteries and beauty of the human body while understanding the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease.
