SAN ANTONIO—The Witte Museum is excited to host Premier Exhibition’s Bodies Revealed, the internationally touring blockbuster exhibition where visitors can see the human body’s inner beauty in educational and awe-inspiring ways.
Presented by Massage Heights, Bodies Revealed will run from October 3, 2015 through January 31, 2016 in the Kathleen and Curtis Gunn Gallery. Bodies Revealed will feature real human bodies donated for science education and then preserved, dissected, and respectfully and artistically displayed.
Explore and experience the wonder of the human form in person and discover how the human body works. Learn about the body’s complex internal structure in galleries providing an up-close look inside the skeletal, respiratory, reproductive, muscular, digestive, nervous and circulatory systems.
“Bodies Revealed is a beautiful homage to the human body,” notes Marise McDermott, President and CEO of the Witte Museum. “It aligns with many of the initiatives we hold here at the Witte. You can visit the exhibit and discover what a healthy body looks like, and then visit the H-E-B Body Adventure, where you can learn how to keep your body healthy.”
“We are very excited to be able to help bring such an exciting exhibit to our hometown,” says Shane Evans, Founder and COO of Massage Heights. “Massage Heights’ philosophy has evolved into much more than providing therapeutic services, it’s about being part of a larger wellness movement focused on helping educate people how they can achieve balanced and healthy lifestyles by caring for their body.”
