About the Event

This spring’s final seminar is a special addition to the Humanities Institute series: Megan Hildebrandt, MFA, and Robin Richardson, MA, will present “The Aesthetics of Health: Illness, Art, Teaching.” Hildebrandt, an artist, professor, and cancer survivor, will share her personal experiences with illness narratives and art. She and Richardson will then discuss “The Aesthetics of Health,” an innovative experiential-learning class that they have created for the spring term. The class represents a unique collaboration between the University of Texas’s Department of Art and Art History and the Livestrong Cancer Institutes.
