Exhibition explores the human body’s organs by way of stained glass

Physicians and glassmakers combined the science of human organs and the art of stained glass in a new exhibition on view through June 28.

“Looking In: Organs and How We View Them” features colorful glass organs — including gallbladders suspended in midair, a series of “nested” wombs, and a glass heart.

The stained glass objects “emphasize the human body’s beauty and fragility,” note the exhibition’s organizers, adding, “The pieces featured inspire us to reflect on the way we and society treat our bodies.”

The show is on view Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Green Gallery, 1156 Chapel St. The exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Lucinda Liu at lucinda.liu@yale.edu or visit the exhibition website.

A closing reception will take place at the Green Gallery 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 27. Dr. David Yuh, professor and chief of cardiac surgery at Yale School of Medicine, will give a talk at 7 p.m.
