UT Cancer Center to host ‘Oncology on Canvas’ exhibit

The University of Toledo Cancer Center hosts the art exhibit titled “Oncology on Canvas,” which will be on display on the fourth floor of Mulford Library on the Health Science Canvas from Monday, May 5, at 9 a.m. until noon Thursday, May 8, 2008.

The Lilly Oncology on Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition was developed by Eli Lilly and Co. in 2004 as a way to honor the journeys people embark upon when confronted with a cancer diagnosis.
The art for this international exhibit is submitted by people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their oncologists, nurses, family members and caregivers, allowing them to share their cancer experience with the world through their works.

Each piece is accompanied by a narrative that describes the inspiration behind the art.
This is the second year the UT Cancer Center has hosted the exhibit. Kathy McVicker, volunteer at the UT Cancer Center, said, “Last year’s exhibit was pretty incredible and very touching.”
Special events during the week will include:
• Monday, May 5, at 7 p.m. in Mulford Library Café — “Art as Therapy” presented by Claudia W. St. Clair, art therapist, Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
• Tuesday, May 6, at 6 p.m. in Mulford Library Café — Oncology Nurses of Northwest Ohio will discuss research on art as therapy.
• Thursday, May 8, at 6 p.m. in the Ruppert Health Center — “My Art … My Life,” presented by muralist Beth Covert. She will talk about her cancer journey; a panel discussion by cancer patients will follow.

Covert is a muralist who was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago and after having surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, she did not have the strength to paint. So she picked up her camera and started taking photos.
“I get lost in my work. I become totally absorbed and lose all awareness of the time, surroundings and most importantly, the difficulties in my own life. That is the gift my art gave me throughout the treatment of cancer in 2006,” Covert said.
A total of 25 pieces of artwork will be displayed in the Mulford Library throughout the week.
Artwork will be judged and the top three prizewinners will receive monetary contributions that will be donated to the artist's cancer charity of choice.
RSVPs are requested for the evening events. For more information on the free, public exhibit and events, or to make a reservation, call the UT Cancer Center at 419.383.6644.
