The Bodies exhibit currently showing in Seattle is opening up for artists and their sketch books Wednesday night.
Best of all, admission is only $10 (half off).
I’ve seen the exhibit once. It’s a fascinating look in to the human body that until now only medical school students have been able to see.
However, as much as I was intrigued and educated by it, I was repulsed by some of the fanciful and playful positions the bodies are posed in.
Ultimately, it’s a highly personal choice as to whether you want to see this show.

What: Seattle Sketch Night at BODIES…The Exhibition
When: Wednesday, Jan. 27. Tickets on sale from 7:00-7:30 p.m.
Where: 1505 Fifth Ave. (Corner of Fifth and Pike) Seattle
Details: BODIES…The Exhibition in Seattle is hosting a sketch night for local artists. The exhibit will stay open late this Wednesday to offer professional and amateur artists full access to the exhibit for only $10, half the usual admission price.
This is a unique opportunity for local artists to sketch studies of carefully preserved, real anatomical specimens as well as deepen their appreciation of the human form. Many of the full-body specimens are dissected in vivid athletic poses, allowing artists to observe how internal structures influence the movements involved in everyday activities.
