Flowers is a collection of drawings, paintings and collages created by UF Health Proton Therapy Institute cancer patients and their family and friends. The collection will be on display through January at Gallery 1037, located inside Reddi-Arts, 1037 Hendricks Ave., Jacksonville.
The daily arts-and-crafts activities are part of the Institute’s Art in Medicine program. The free program enables participants to create art, regardless of experience level, and promotes feelings of well-being. Individual pieces in the Flowers exhibit are for sale. Your purchase of a unique artwork will help fund the Art in Medicine program, bringing comfort and cheer to cancer patients.
A special reception for patients, caregivers, proton alumni and the public will take place at the gallery on January 26, 5-7 p.m.
The reception will feature
- complimentary refreshments
- handcrafted flower corsages available for a suggested donation of $5 each
- framed art created by children and adults with cancer available for $100 each
