SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center to Host Rockford Area Arts Council Fall ArtScene, October 7

SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center, 3535 N. Bell School Road, Rockford, is pleased to announce that it is a venue for the Rockford Area Arts Council Fall ArtScene on Friday, October 7 from 5:00 – 9:00 PM.

The theme for this year’s show will be “Healing Through Art.” The juried show will feature art created by more than 50 artists who are SwedishAmerican patients, associates, volunteers and/or their family members. Their works include paintings, photographs, mixed media creations, sculptures, stained class and wood turnings. SwedishAmerican particularly asked artists to offer an account of how crafting their art impacted their personal healing journey. With their permission, their stories will be displayed alongside their pieces and artists will be on-hand to answer questions. Additionally, SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center plans to permanently display these remarkable works of art in its facility.

The event is free and will include light refreshments. For questions or to learn more, please contact Sharon Whelan at (77) 696-2840.
