Exhibitions of Paintings by Michael Keyes | Anschutz Medical Campus Community is an exhibition presented by the Exhibits Committee of the Health Sciences Library.
Michael Keyes is a native of Dayton, Ohio. It was there he drew inspiration for much of his work, ranging from woodcuts to paintings. About 5 years ago, Michael retired from the HVAC industry, and he and his wife (also an artist) moved to Denver to be closer to their grandchildren. He holds a MFA in printmaking and is now working full-time creating his art. Come see his new exciting artwork in the Health Sciences Library 3rd floor Gallery.

Before the rigorous application process of formal medical education was required, anyone who could afford a few dollars could attend medical lectures, and eventually become a doctor. The Medical Lecture Ticket exhibit showcases several lecture tickets from all over the US, including from the University of Denver’s Dental Department and the Denver and Gross Medical College. The tickets represent an era where there was little regulation and oversight. Although seen as democratizing education, the medical ticket system often led to abuse and poorly trained doctors. The tickets disappeared as medical education reformers began to create the modern medical school application process and curriculum that medical school follow today.
