This free public exhibit, which is touring communities nationwide, will showcase select pieces of art from the Lilly Oncology on Canvas competition. Themes explored in this inspiring collection range from fear and hope, to loss and survival, to isolation and the embrace of family and friends.

Launched in 2004, the Lilly Oncology on Canvas Art Competition and Exhibition invites people from the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, who are diagnosed with any type of cancer – as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers – to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning. Winners’ prizes consist of donations made to the cancer-related charities of their choice. Art from the competition tours hospitals, cancer centers and cancer advocacy group events.
