Through fresh eyes: Art show at Farrell

Marilynne Bradley's paintings capture Medical Campus, St. Louis

Not many art careers begin in a pathology lab. As a teenager, Marilynne Bradley illustrated a lab’s blood chemistry book, helping her earn a chemistry scholarship to Washington University. She studied pre-med, but eventually committed fully to art. The Webster Groves (Mo.) Arts Commission recently presented Bradley, FA ’60 — a watercolorist, illustrator, historian and educator — with its Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Award and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay declared Oct. 11, 2013, "Marilynne Bradley Day." Her works are showcased around the world in museum exhibits and corporate collections. Following cataract surgery at the Center for Advanced Medicine, Bradley saw the Medical Center through fresh eyes. The resulting paintings are on exhibit in the Farrell Learning and Teaching Center through February 2014.
