The International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago is calling for proposals for "Anatomy in the Gallery:"

[This program] showcases medically themed contemporary art within the unique context of the Museum's historical collections and exhibits. The program was begun in 1998 to help fulfill the Museum's mission of enriching its visitors' lives by enhancing their knowledge and understanding of surgery and related sciences.

Previous exhibitors include Laura Splan (above), Laura Kurtenbach, Geraldine Ondrizek, and Dominic Paul Moore.

There are a total of eight exhibition openings for 2010, and the deadline for proposals is April 17. More details here.
