Backyard Story Night: Healing Touch

  • Health Discovery Building 1601 Trinity Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

Join Landmarks, Austin’s Backyard Story Night, Dell Medical School and the Humanities Institute to enjoy an evening of stories centered around the theme Healing Touch.

Commissioned for the newly opened Dell Medical School, artist Ann Hamilton created a series of photographs that illustrate touch, something we typically feel rather than see. The project is framed by the idea that human touch is the most essential means of contact and a fundamental expression of physical and emotional care. Hamilton’s larger-than-life portraits will serve as a backdrop for the evening of stories. This event celebrates the human exchanges that occur in public art and health care, as well as the importance of both in the Austin community.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. with tours of the work of art in the Health Discovery Building and Health Transformation Building.

Stories will begin at 7 p.m. outside of the Health Discovery Building; please dress accordingly. Parking is available in the Health Center Garage.

Cider and hot chocolate will be provided; cash bar and snacks available for purchase.
