The Art of Saving a Life

A beautiful display of artwork all centered around the theme of saving a life- specifically focusing on vaccines.  Check it out! This project is commissioned by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation to convey the importance of vaccines.

Vaccines are one of the greatest advances in human history. They have saved millions of lives, and led to better health and opportunity for children and families everywhere.

The stories behind this success and the future promise of immunization must be told.

They are stories of risk and bravery, the passion and dedication of scientists, the love of parents, and the determination of health workers.

The Art of Saving a Life is a collection of these stories, as told by more than 30 world-renowned photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers, and musicians. The full collection of art will be unveiled over the course of January 2015.
