About This Event

  • Event Type:General

Meridian Museum of Art, in collaboration with Anderson Regional Cancer Center, presents “Canvases for Cancer”, a gala event featuring original creative works of well-known regional artists.

Proceeds of the event will bring the arts into Anderson Regional Cancer Center’s radiation therapy rooms by installing a state-of-the art, luminous “sky” ceiling for patients to view while undergoing treatment. The virtual sky provides an environment of serenity and a deeper relaxation response for cancer patients.

The inaugural event has tapped local watercolor artist, Rosemary Kahlmus, as the Honorary Chair. As a cancer survivor, Kahlmus plays a vital role in raising cancer awareness and sharing the power of healing through art expression.

The evening will include a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, refreshments, and opportunities to meet the artists. Business attire is preferred.
