Still Life: Documenting Cancer Survivorship

This inspiring journey into healing art charts twenty-five cancer survivors ranging in age, sex, and race. With little experience in the medium, they learned the artistic and technical skills to create beautiful works, conveying their experiences in survivorship. Rather than submitting to the difficulties of cancer, these artists have fought to illuminate the true significance of not only what we see, but how we perceive it, in the universally human process of finding a new way to view the world around us when confronted with hardship. The Creative Center is a community of artists, cancer patients, survivors, and friends dedicated to bringing creative arts to people living with cancer through workshops and an acclaimed Artist-in-Residence Program in hospitals and hospices throughout the U.S. Contains a guide to setting up your own community-based art program. Accompanied by a traveling photography exhibition.

Accompanied by a traveling photography exhibition going to the following locations: Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN; Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, NY; Harvard in Cambridge, MA, to name a few.
