A free exhibit with works by artists living with cancer will be on display Friday at the Central Valley Cancer Center in Merced.
Called “Lilly Oncology on Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey,” the exhibit will be shown from 1 to 6:30 p.m. at the center at 3175 Collins Drive.
The exhibit shows works submitted in a competition by people from the United States and Puerto Rico who have been diagnosed with any kind of cancer, as well as their families, friends, caregivers and health care providers, according to a press release.
The art is geared toward helping the artist express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.
To date, more than 4,000 people affected by cancer have submitted artwork and narratives to the exhibit.
The exhibit is currently touring cancer centers, hospitals and patient advocacy events nationwide and in Puerto Rico.
The exhibit is presented by Lilly Oncology in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, which advocates for quality cancer care for all Americans and provides tools that empower people affected with cancer to advocate for themselves, according to the release.
