Davenport, Iowa (September 5, 2018) – Living Proof Exhibit will present its annual exhibition of cancer survivor art from September 6–December 9 at the Figge Art Museum’s Mary Waterman Gildehaus Community Gallery on the second-floor.
The exhibition, "A Visualization of Hope," features more than 50 pieces of art created by cancer survivors in the Tri-State area, many of whom will be in attendance at the opening reception, which is free and open to the public at the Figge from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on September 6.
"This year's exhibition includes a wider variety of mediums than ever before," said Pamela Crouch, executive director of Living Proof Exhibit. "Our incredibly talented artists show that there are no boundaries when it comes to expressing the feelings experienced during the cancer journey."
Living Proof Exhibit will also present two programs associated with the exhibition. These programs, to be held at the Figge, are free and open to anyone whose life has been impacted by cancer. Ryan Collins, executive director of the Midwest Writing Center, will lead a writing session from 6 to 8 p.m. on September 13 in which participants will use the artwork in the exhibition as inspiration, and art therapist Dana Keaton will lead a session of meditation and creative painting from 6 to 8 p.m. on October 25. Registration is required for these programs.
"A Visualization of Hope" is sponsored by ABC Lymphedema Clinic, Forever Me Cancer Specialty Boutique, and The Singh Group.
