Added after my first visit.
David Arrigo is known for his works of art for the sports world and corporate industry that include murals and bold designs for helmets. His inspiration for the Brain Project is our pride in our national game of hockey. His piece celebrates the game at the grassroots level and all the parents who have sacrificed their time to give their children an opportunity to play.
Julie Pongrac - Decoding the Brain is inspired by the knowledge that both neural pathways and gene expression respond to environmental factors. Further research into how either is modified through our daily habits, such as diet, exercise, sleep and ‘what thoughts we think’ will help to decode the mysteries of how diseases of the brain like Alzheimer’s disease develop or not. Furthermore, this knowledge may provide new targets for drug development. Taken together, this research provides hope that despite our predispositions, we can assert control over the rate at which disease is expressed.
Artist Lance Freitag was inspired by our exposure to the fears we have had in the past and the fears we will face in the future. The past has always had a way of haunting the human mind with the times we have gone through and the endless blurs and anger of words that are written, said, and violently put upon us. We move through that to our futures of peace and life in the end. You can choose to let this get in the way of your life, or you can take what you have and destroy what destroys you. Still here.

In describing his inspiration for the Brain Project, artist David Drebin noted that the title of this brain says it all: Inner Thoughts. What was once personal and safely nestled inside one’s mind is now on display for all to see. Take a look and see if you discover some inner thoughts of your own.

Memory is an invisible tool that empowers Janet Lage to connect seemingly unrelated ideas to form a visual experience. The ability to reach into her bag of memories is critical to the creative process. Maintaining brain health is crucial for everyone. It allows us to transform insight into light, ideas into feeling, and memories into creativity. Brain health is Brain Magic.
