    The New York Academy of Medicine's Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health presents its first all-day festival on October 5, 2013, celebrating artists, scholars, writers and thinkers working at the intersections of history, medicine, art and the humanities. Free events on three floors are open to the public without registration from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The widely varied program includes an exhibition of some of the Center's more than 500,000 volumes, behind-the-scenes tours of its book and paper conservation laboratory, and other historical gems, plus a rarely screened film from the National Library of Medicine’s collection starring Gene Kelly as a sailor suffering combat fatigue. The Center will also welcome two guest curators. Lawrence Weschler will present one of his well-known “Wonder Cabinets” and curate a day of presentations with speakers including Oliver Sacks, Bill Hayes, Riva Lehrer, and Jane Gauntlett. Brooklyn’s Morbid Anatomy will present anatomical drawing workshops, a medical wax moulage demonstration, and speakers exploring the surprisingly fertile intersections of art and medicine.
