ATLANTA, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Premier Exhibitions, Inc.
(Nasdaq: PRXI) today announced that Bodies Revealed will open December 22nd
at the new Hartford 21 Civic Center in downtown Hartford, Connecticut. The
Exhibition features real, whole and partial body specimens that have been
meticulously dissected and preserved through an innovative process, giving
visitors the opportunity to view the complexity of their own organs and
systems like never before.
"Bodies Revealed" is an unprecedented opportunity to teach visitors
about the human body in a direct and personal way that has an undeniable
impact," states Bruce Eskowitz, President and CEO of Premier Exhibitions,
Inc. "Hartford's significant economic development, prominent hospitals and
world renowned educational institutions, make the capital city an
impressive setting for Bodies Revealed. We look forward to being a part of
the community and working closely with its representatives to make the
exhibition a success."
"This is great news for Hartford," said Mayor Eddie Perez, "this world-
class exhibition will draw visitors to our city from throughout the region
and provide a catalyst for economic development."
The Exhibition takes visitors through galleries providing an up-close
look inside the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory
and other systems of the human body. Many of the whole body specimens are
dissected in athletic poses, allowing the visitor to relate to everyday
activities. In addition, authentic human specimens illustrate the damage
caused to organs by over-eating and lack of exercise. A healthy lung is
featured next to a black lung ravaged by smoking in a vivid comparison more
powerful than any textbook image.
Premier Exhibitions, Inc. is a major provider of museum quality touring
exhibitions throughout the world.
