Healing Arts: The Story of Survival is an exhibition of works by people who participated in the Artist-In-Residence program at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Orlando. The informative exhibition tells the story of diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship by celebrating health, healing, and the therapeutic power of art.
In March 2011, MD Anderson implemented an artist in residence program to use the various arts to comfort and support patients as they received chemo, waited to see doctors, and spent time in the hospital. Since that time, Angilyn Watson, Andi Cami, and I have had the great privilege to spend time one-on-one with patients and their families and conduct workshops open to those whose lives have been touched by cancer, and unfortunately, that is just about everyone.
This exhibit will feature the stories of four people who attended workshops at MD Anderson: Norma Beasley, G Zarek, Lois Strickland, and Jewel Moncada. I’m so proud to have been a part of this powerfully moving exhibit, and I encourage you to go and experience it for yourself.
Join us for the opening on Thursday, February 21st at 6:00 p.m. and meet many of the artists.
