PHILADELPHIAConfronting Cancer Through Art is a juried exhibition of inspirational artwork crafted by individuals who have been touched by cancer (see artwork). This year marks the second time that the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center has sponsored this exhibit, which runs through October 31, 1999, at the Arthur Ross Gallery in Philadelphia. The first exhibit was presented in 1996.
Artmaking encourages vision, hope, and imagination, all of which foster the healing process, said Gianna Volpe, MFA, who directs the Cancer Centers Art Program and whose own artwork is part of the exhibit. The exhibit contains 65 pieces created in various media, including sculpture, quilting, painting, and photography. It can be viewed online until October 31, 1999, at the Centers website: www.oncolink.upenn.edu.
