Artist Panel Discussion and Reception


Curatorial Statement


Breaking Through the Distance explores themes of mental health, isolation, self-care, and compassion for others. By bringing these themes into public view, we normalize and de-stigmatize them. The exhibit provides a glimpse into the artist’s inner dialogue through an interactive sensory experience. By creating this intimate space, we remove the distance between artist and audience. The artists and curators of this show want to provide mental health resources for audience members in need while creating a cathartic safe space for those suffering in silence.

About the Event
Director Ortiz will discuss how the City of Austin's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is the coordinating focal point before, during, and after emergencies for Austin, Texas. Like a conductor leading an orchestra, the office ensures that each city department has the resources it needs to function during a disaster. This allows residents to continue receiving valuable services to minimize disruptions to their lives.

Mr. Ortiz received his Bachelor of Science in Emergency Administration and Disaster Planning from the University of North Texas in 1994. Since then, he has coordinated emergency response departments in Corpus Christi (1998-2003), Fort Worth (2003-2017), and Austin (2017-present).

During his tenure as Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Response for the City of Austin, Mr. Ortiz has coordinated the city’s response to Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Laura, the Colorado River Flood, COVID-19, and Winter Storm Uri.
