How can Dutch art from the 17th century propel conversations and inspire creative thinking today, especially when it comes to managing the ongoing COVID-19 global health crisis? At this event, copresented by the Center for Netherlandish Art and Netherlands Innovation Network, join a conversation between professors from different disciplines to explore art, health, and disease in society and times of pandemic—then and now—and take a closer look at the pivotal roles the Netherlands and Greater Boston have played in health innovation through the centuries.
