Bodies of Truth: An Artist's Creative Exploration through Cancer
Health sciences Library
Oct. 10-Feb. 28
Wheeling based artist Lacie Wallace shares self-portraits and other artwork she has painted throughout her experience in and out of hospitals as a patient with cancer as she has become "more aware of my new body, my cancer body." The bright and intimate portraits are coupled with narratives written by Lacie as well as those around her who have been moved by her courage and stamina including members of her healthcare team and others. As an act of story, art and healthcare, Bodies of Truth illuminates a full circle view of Lacie as a strong patient, artist, mother, community member and human being.
