Brushes with Cancer - Pairing Artists with Those Touched by Cancer to Create for a Cause
August through October, 2015
Brushes with Cancer is a four month program focusing on survivorship and hope through art, music and storytelling. Select previvors, survivors and caregivers are paired with talented artists working in a variety of media.
Those touched by cancer share their "twist on cancer." Their "twists" serve as inspiration for the artists to create unique pieces of art. Brushes with Cancer culminates at an annual celebratory event where the pairs connect in person and the artwork is revealed for the first time.

Art offers the opportunity for expression when words are not enough. The Voices Art Gallery was created to give those who have been touched by cancer the opportunity to share their experience through the expression of art.
The Voices Art Gallery is offered by the Cancer Center Art Therapy Program and is made possible by gifts to the Helen and Sonya Fund and the Cancer Center Art Therapy Program. Program supplies are generously supported by the Robert Bruce Dunlap Memorial Fund.
