HOUSTON (FOX 26) - "Body as a Work of Art: More Than Skin Deep," an exhibit at John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science, is open to the public until Friday, Jan. 11, 2019. It features a never-before-seen collection of public visual installations and visual art that shows inner and outer beauty, including ten molds of actual human bodies transformed into wearable garments.
