Unique art exhibit, focused on cancer, coming to Tucson

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A special art exhibit is coming to Tucson, but you won't be going to an art gallery to see the work.

The exhibit, called "Voices and Visions, Standing on the Bridge between Health and Disease" goes on display tomorrow at the University of Arizona Cancer Center -- North Campus.

Caren Rudman is the show's curator and also a participating artist. This is the third year of the show, and the third stop this year for the exhibit. All the art is created by people who have been touched in some way by breast cancer or other women's health issues.

The show has two parts: art and voice. The art part includes work from more than 27 artists ranging from painting to photography. The voices part includes written descriptions and explanations from the artists about their personal experiences with cancer.

The show, which is sponsored by Medline Industries, Inc. is meant to connect and empower people from all over the country who are dealing with the same emotions.

"Ultimately there is always hope and there's always something that can come out of it," Rudman said. "You know, out of darkness comes light. That's what I feel creative processes, and artwork does to the whole healing soul. I think this cancer center in particular nourishes that."

Next, the exhibit will head to Chicago.

The exhibit starts tomorrow, April 4th and runs through May 8th. The exhibit is free, and open to the public during regular hours at the University of Arizona Cancer Center -- North Campus. The address there is 3838 N. Campbell Avenue.
