Joe Gold of The Gold Group based in Salem, Mass. and a resident of Swampscott, is the driving force behind bringing the exhibit BODY WORLDS Vital to Quincy Market at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. It opened to the public on Nov. 22. BODY WORLDS Vital exhibition is the first time the space has been used in 5 years since the Comedy Connection and Boston Rocks closed down in 2008. The Gold Group, in conjunction with Faneuil Hall Marketplace, renovated the historic space into a museum quality exhibit space that will show BODY WORLDS Vital at least til March 2014. BODY WORLDS Vital is an immersive, multimedia experience celebrating the potential of the human body and the body in motion. It is a chapter from public anatomist Gunther von Hagens’ HUMAN SAGA project—a series of curated museum health exhibitions narrating neuroscience, cardiology, longevity and aging, and other explorations in anatomy. Attached is a press release and a photo from the opening reception of Joe Gold and his family. For more information www.bodyworldsboston.com
