About the Exhibit

Beyond Cancer Art Project 2007 — Celebrating the Triumph of Early Detection — was co-sponsored by the Pacific Art League and the Canary Foundation. The exhibition's theme was to raise awareness for early detection and to allow artists whose lives have been affected by cancer to artistically express the complicated dimensions of living with, through and beyond cancer. Selected pieces were displayed at the Canary Annual Cancer Symposium at Stanford, the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto and at the San Jose Grand Prix fundraiser benefiting Canary Foundation in San Jose.

The Silicon Valley Art Museum is pleased to present “Beyond Cancer”, an exhibit by artists whose lives have been touched by cancer. The anguish of cancer is palpable in these evocative images and their artists’ statements.

The exhibit falls outside of the Museum’s usual focus of presenting art that explores the impact of technology and science on works of art. Nevertheless, the Museum believes that the exhibit will be of interest to the public and should be broadly accessible through the Internet. From time to time, the Museum expects to present other exhibits that are of special public interest.

The Museum would also like to express its appreciation to the Pacific Art League and the Canary Foundation for sponsoring the exhibit and for their cooperation and support.in bringing these images to SVAM and our visitors.
