2010 Lilly Oncology On Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey art competition and exhibition
About Lilly Oncology on CanvasLaunched in 2004, Lilly Oncology on Canvas is now showcasing its 2010 competition. This biennial art competition invites people from the United States and Puerto Rico diagnosed with any type of cancer -- as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providres -- to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning. To date, more than 3,600 individuals touched by cancer have submitted artwork and narratives to Lilly Oncology on Canvas. Artwork from the 2010 competition is currently touring cancer centers, hospitals and patient advocacy events nationwide and Puerto Rico.
The themes explored in the more than 600 entries submitted to the 2010 competition ranged from hope, to fear, to the loss of individualism, to the support of family and friends, to the memory of those lost, to the perserverance of those who survive. In 2010, nearly $40,000 was donated to the cancer-related charities chosen by the winners.
The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center is proud to host the exhibition from March 5 through March 23.
Lilly Oncology on Canvas is presented by Lilly Oncology in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), which advocates for quality cancer care for all Americans and provides tools to empower people affected by cancer to advocate for themselves.
