The ScART Gallery in our hospital’s Berger Lobby recently celebrated
our scArtist’s inspirational designs and stories of their cancer
journey and scars. ScART, or scar art, is an abstract painting process
where cancer survivors sketch their scars from cancer treatment on canvas,
then turn the drawing into an interpretive painting.
As treacherous as cancer treatment is, resuming the routines of work and
family life after completing treatment can be equally difficult. Participants
are encouraged to embrace their scars by turning them into beautiful pieces
of abstract art.
While the final product is both beautiful and meaningful, the shared experience
among cancer survivors can be therapeutic and spiritually uplifting. Congratulations
to all our artists for as they continue their journey.
