Tracy Walker for Smithsonian Magazine

Art directed by Maria Keehan for Smithsonian Magazine, Tracy Walker re-created a section of the Sistine Chapel with a contemporary twist for the article Hard-Wired for Art.  In the words of writer, Abigail Tucker: "It's about how the brain processes art. In particular how scientists studied the neural response to Michelangelo's illustration of Adam's expulsion from Eden, featured on the chapel's ceiling."
