Lilly Oncology On Canvas is an art exhibition honoring the physical and emotional journeys people face when confronted by a cancer diagnosis. This free public exhibit, which is touring communities nationwide, showcases 25 select pieces of art from the 2010 Oncology On Canvas competition and is in Concord now until Oct. 14 when it will be displayed at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event at Memorial Field.
Launched in 2004, Oncology On Canvas is a biennial art competition that invites people from the U.S. diagnosed with any type of cancer, as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers, to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give the cancer journey meaning.
The themes explored in the entries range from hope, to fear, to loss, to the support of family and friends, to the memory of those lost, to the perseverance of those who survive.
The exhibit will be on display at the Capitol Center for the Arts, 44 S. Main St., Oct. 10-13.
Exhibit hours are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
