This past April, we launched a brand new initiative entitled “Brushes With Cancer- Pairing Artists with Survivors to Create for a Cause.” The event celebrates survivorship and hope through art, music and storytelling. Held at Chicago’s renown Floating World Gallery, the event successfully matched 18 artists with 18 survivors, and attracted over 400 attendees. In 2014 our hope is to expand the program to include 30 artists who will be matched those who have been touched by cancer. Please note that survivors, caregivers and loved ones are encouraged to participate. We believe that you do not need to be a survivor to be impacted by this growing epidemic.
Call For Submissions
