Hektoen Nurses and Humanities and the International Museum of Surgical Science are delighted to announce the exhibit: Remembrance & Renewed Hope, on view for the month of May in the Museum’s historic Library in honor of Nurses Month. The Museum’s library features a long antique green table and chairs. This exhibition will feature fourteen place settings for a Nurse’s dinner table display. Nine of the settings feature past nursing leaders (Remembrance) and five are current nursing leaders (Renewed Hope). The displays are created by a group of nurses who are also practicing artists. Discover each artist's interpretation of these important nurse figures.
