The Art of Baylor: Sculptures

Students come to Baylor College of Medicine to learn the art of medicine, but if they look closely they may get an art education as well.

Today we’re taking a look at a pair of sculptures that can be found on the main Baylor College of Medicine building at One Baylor Plaza.

Pranayama

Found outside the Michael E. DeBakey Museum, “Pranayama,” by Mark di Suvero, was dedicated in 1982. Placed in recognition of the service of Leonard F. McCollum, a former chairman of Baylor, the sculpture is named for the Hindu expression for the cycle of life and death.

Anjin

Anjin is a welded steel sculpture by artist Peter Reginato. Crafted in 1977, it can be found in the lobby at the main entrance of the DeBakey Museum. The sculpture is on loan from the members of the Taub family, whose philanthropic efforts helped shape the Texas Medical Center.
