What: The Arts of Healing Foundation Physician Art Show and Dinner

Where: The Post Oak Hotel

PC Moment: Dozens of works by talented artists who are physicians by day and creatives by night were on display in the ballroom foyer along with artwork from children participating in the foundation’s Summer Art Series for the Sunshine Kids. A number of the young artists joined in the dinner/dance evening.

While the 400-plus guests viewed the impressive collection of paintings, jazz entertainment was provided by Dr. Jose Miguel-Yamal on keyboard, Dr. Dean Moore on sax and Dr. Mark Dannenbaum on drums.

The real excitement of the evening came during the live auction when auctioneer Johnny Bravo led the charge of auctioning off the doctors’ artworks along with those of the Sunshine Kids.

“The evening celebrates some of the best artists in our city, who also happen to be remarkable physicians during the day,” MD Anderson’s Dr. Ishwaria Subbiah says. “This event really represents how important art is as part of our society.”
