LeoVroman.jpg The UNT Health Science Center’s Atrium Gallery will feature works by Leo Vroman Oct. 31 through Nov. 30 in an exhibit called “Connections: Art, Poetry, Science and Religion.”

Vroman’s works will include carvings that he made while he was a prisoner of war during World War II, ballpoint pen drawings made during his subway commute in New York after his arrival in the United States, some of his latest computer-generated art work, psalms, and several of his 50 books, most of which are poetry.

Vroman is best known in Holland as a poet and probably best known in the United States as a research scientist in blood and material interactions. Many of his discoveries as a scientist can be found in his illustrations, including the Vroman Effect, which has motivated and influenced scientists studying blood and material interactions ever since its inception.

A reception for Vroman will take place Saturday, Nov. 5, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Education and Administration Building Atrium Gallery on the health science center campus.
