Brushes With Cancer Detroit in Partnership with General Motors Design Center
September 25, 2020

The Program

Twist Out Cancer is excited to announce an official partnership with the GM Design Center Gallery. Over the next 5 months, GM Design & GM Tech Center employees will participate in an exclusive Brushes with Cancer program. GM Artists will be strategically matched with “Inspirations” – people who has been touched by cancer, which includes survivors, previvors, caregivers and supporters. The pairs will work together as the artists create a unique piece of artwork that is reflective of the Inspiration’s journey with cancer. The program will culminate in a month-long exhibition at the GM Design Center Gallery in Warren this September. The artwork created will be available for purchase through an online auction.

The program will select 25+ Inspirations & 25+ artists from GM Design and from the GM Technical Center family .

If you are a General Motors tech center employee and are interested in learning more please consider attending the upcoming information session on April 7th  at 3:00 pm and on April 14th at 11:00 am EST through Zoom .
