Lilly Oncology On Canvas: An Art Director’s View

Today’s guest blog comes from Anita Chernewski, Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition Director.

Since Lilly Oncology On Canvas was first launched 10 years ago, there have been more than 4,400 life stories told through art. I have served as the competition’s art director since its inception in 2004, which means I have had the honor of receiving and experiencing each and every submission and, on many occasions, the privilege of speaking with many entrants about their cancer journeys.

For this year’s artbook, I was asked to share those entries that have touched me the most. However, this was an assignment I could not complete because to me and the Oncology On Canvas℠ Team, every submission is a cherished story to treasure.

Read on for more on the entries Anita chose as representative of the last 10 years of Oncology On Canvas.
