SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Robert J. Demarest, renowned medical illustrator, will be a guest speaker at Sleepy Hollow High School for its National Honor Society Induction at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at the high school's auditorium.
Demarest will focus on his fascinating experience of creating the book "Traveling with Winslow Homer."
Demarest is the director emeritus of the Center for Biocommunications at Columbia University's College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York City. He is renowned for his work as a medical illustrator—his work has appeared in dozens of medical textbooks, countless research papers, medical journals and many popular magazines, such as the Reader’s Digest, Life, Newsweek, and Time.
Although he has received many awards for his work, Demarest is most proud of being the honored recipient of the Crosby Medal for Excellence, awarded by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Demarest is the author and co-author of several medical texts and, most recently, the author of "Traveling with Winslow Homer." He has presented numerous lectures on Winslow Homer's life at museums, art societies and angling clubs.
