More About The Art of Healing

The Art of Healing exhibition explores the therapeutic power of the creative process to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of cancer patients and their loved ones.

Through drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and written word, artists chronicle their journeys from a variety of perspectives and offer powerful, visual portrayals of the emotional impact associated with a physical illness. The exhibition evokes a better understanding of the everyday challenges of those affected by cancer, honors the lives and memories of those fighting the disease and illustrates how art provides a sense of healing, belonging and relating in situations filled with uncertainty.

The exhibit is on display February 28-April 19. The Stifel Fine Arts Center is open 9am-5pm Monday through Friday and 10am-4pm Saturday. Admission is free.

Sponsored by The Health Plan, WVU Medicine and United Bank with additional support provided by the Home Support Foundation.
