Landmarks purchased Spiral of the Galaxy by Marc Quinn to anchor the gateway to the Dell Medical School. The conch carries cultural and religious significance, and among many interpretations can be seen here as a complex structure that protects delicate organisms.
Funding for the acquisition of Spiral of the Galaxy was provided by the capital improvement project for Dell Medical School. This project would not have been possible without generous assistance from many including:
Andrée Bober and Landmarks Pat Clubb and University Operations Douglas Dempster and the College of Fine Arts Gregory Fenves and the Office of the President Clay Johnston and Dell Medical School Landmarks Advisory Committee Bob Rawski and the Office of Facilities Planning and Construction David Rea and the Office of Campus Planning and Facilities Management Frederick Steiner and the Campus Master Planning Committee
