LILLY ONCOLOGY ON CANVAS AT DCH
ART EXHIBIT TO RUN THROUGH APRIL 29TH
(Washington, IN) – Lilly Oncology on Canvas, an international art
exhibit honoring the journeys traveled by millions of people affected
by cancer worldwide, is on display at Daviess Community Hospital through
April 29th. A dozen works of art adorn the hospital’s main lobby
for visitors to enjoy.
“Our patient navigator, Sharon Mead, contacted Lilly Oncology to
ask if they would bring the exhibit to DCH as part of our open house for
The Lohano Center for Advanced Medicine,” stated Angie Steiner,
Director of Business Development at DCH. “They were kind enough
to let us display the artwork for a few weeks.”
For several years, Lilly Oncology on Canvas (LOOC) has provided individuals
affected by cancer an opportunity to connect through art and narrative.
Since its founding in 2004, and in partnership with the National Coalition
for Cancer Survivorship and the Cancer Support Community, more than 4400
pieces of artwork have been received, hundreds of exhibitions have been
held, and thousands have been inspired to share their journeys with countless
others. Original artwork that depicts one's cancer journey was submitted
in one of six media: watercolor, oil, pastel, photography, acrylic or
mixed media. The artwork is accompanied by a narrative.
While thousands of stories have been shared in the last several years,
there are many still waiting to be told. In the U.S., there are nearly
14 million cancer survivors today in addition to millions of others who
love and care for them. Creating, viewing and talking about the disease
can help patients and their loved ones cope with this serious illness.
As this program continues to evolve, Lilly Oncology hopes to provide cancer
community members an opportunity to connect through the changes, experiences,
and emotions that give their cancer journeys meaning.
