The Brain Project Launches!

justin blayney brain projectI was asked to participate in the 2017 Brain Project for the Baycrest Foundation. They provided me with a 3 dimensional blank brain which I painted with my pixel style.  The project was a lot of fun and my Brain has already been sponsored by Muse (they donated money to the foundation to have have their name travel with my brain), so I am pleased that my efforts have raised them a donation for their great cause.

All the brains will be touring around Toronto for next while, please let me know if you spot my brain anywhere. Also if you visit their website, they have an interactive 3D view of the brain. They have a people choice award for the most popular brain, please vote for my brain on the same page (you can vote every day!).

About the Project:

The Brain Project is a large-scale outdoor exhibit that brings brain health, art and imagination to the streets of Toronto. In 2016, The Brain Project launched its inaugural exhibit across the city to start a public conversation about brain health and bring awareness to diseases like Alzheimer’s.

As The Brain Project returns for its second year, one hundred artists from around the world will transform blank brain sculptures into beautiful, energetic and thought-provoking pieces of art. The sculptures are sponsored by corporations and philanthropists, and will be displayed in more than 15 locations around Toronto and the GTA.

Funds raised through the project are donated to Baycrest Health Sciences, a global leader in brain health and aging.
