Artists Make Art in Treatment

This section of the exhibit highlights three artists who had established art careers before their cancer diagnosis.

All three used their art practice to cope with the experiences of the disease.

Two, Val and Laurel, participated in the CSMC art therapy groups and the other, Mack, passed away before those groups were established.

Val's and Laurel's art are testimonies to hope and Mack's, lovingly contributed by his dear friends, is a legacy to his belief in the creative process.
