Giant Brains To Decorate Bloomington

Last updated on Wednesday, February 8, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - Jill Bolte Taylor, a Bloomington brain scientist, has dreamed up an exhibit featuring giant brains that will be mounted around Bloomington this spring.

The goal of the Brain Extravaganza project is to remind people of the importance and complexity of the body's control center.

In May, 22 5-foot-tall fiberglass brains will be mounted around Bloomington after each is decorated by a different artist.

The brains will remain in place until the fall. Taylor says there will be a patch of brains in town and another on campus, with teaser brains in high traffic areas.

Each brain display will cost $3,200.

Taylor's memoir about her recovery from a stroke became a best seller.
