Medical Museum Science Cafe: Exploring Emerging DNA Technologies in Indentifying Historic Human Remains @ National Museum of Health and Medicine


A 1990s excavation of a grave in an 18-19th century cemetery revealed the remains of a 50-55 year old male. The skeleton had been disturbed and the skull and femur bones were placed in a “skull and cross bones” orientation sometime after decomposition was complete. “JB-55” was spelled out on the coffin lid with brass tacks. Join DNA scientists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System to learn how the decades-old historical archaeology case of “JB-55” has been solved using next-generation DNA technology and profiles from genealogical DNA databases. This event is free! For more information contact us at 301-319-3303 or visit our website at https://www.medicalmuseum.mil/index.cfm?p=media.events.2019.scicafe_jul2019.

Plein Air Workshop with Valerie Craig @ Sandy Spring Museum
Oct 25 @ 9:00 pm – Oct 26 @ 4:00 pm

Capture the beauty of autumn light on canvas while painting in the historic village of Sandy Spring. Master plein air artist Valerie Craig will emphasize simplification and organization of shapes, use of color temperature, atmospheric perspective and the benefits of painting on location. Students will learn what to select and what to omit to create a strong design. Participants will receive lots of individual attention and direction. Painters may work in oil, acrylic or pastel and demonstrations will be offered in oil. Come with your plein air supplies, lunch and a drink. This is a two-day workshop, but you can sign up for one day if necessary.

Known for her impressionist approach to color and light, Craig’s subject matter includes urban and rural landscapes as well as intimate still life paintings, and figures within a landscape. Craig has had more than twenty years in the field to date, painting in both watercolor and oils. Like most artists, Craig continues to be a student of art, always reaching for a higher level of excellence, while discovering and expressing her own voice.

In order to focus on her own painting, Craig is hosting fewer workshops than in the past. You won’t want to miss this one. Registration is limited to 15 people.
