Inspirations and Artists at the 2022 Brushes With Cancer Gala in Chicago

Inspirations and Artists at the 2022 Brushes With Cancer Gala in Chicago


ART STUDENTS AT WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY PARTICIPATE IN TWIST OUT CANCER’S LICENSED BRUSHES WITH CANCER PROGRAM 17 unique pieces of artwork have been created to represent 17 personal journeys with cancer;

Art will be on display at the Art Department Gallery from May 18 through June 15  2023, Detroit – Twist Out Cancer, an international non-profit charitable organization that provides psychosocial support to individuals touched by cancer through creative arts programming, announced a new licensed Brushes With Cancer program with Wayne State University.

The program features 17 Artists from Wayne State’s Art, Art History, Art Education, and Art Therapy departments. This includes students, alumni, and staff artists who were matched with anyone touched by cancer – previvors, survivors, and caregivers – from around the country. After getting to know each other over the past few months, each artist created a unique piece of artwork to represent their Inspiration’s personal journey with cancer.

The artwork will be on display from Thursday, May 18 through Thursday, June 15 at Wayne State’s Art Department Gallery, located in the Community Arts Building, 5400 Reuther Mall, in Detroit. The licensed program at Wayne State University follows an open Brushes With Cancer program in Detroit in 2019 and a licensed program with the GM Design Center in 2020.

“We are grateful for the support we have received from the community in Detroit over the last several years and are thrilled to work with the art students and faculty at Wayne State University,” said Jenna Benn Shersher, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Twist Out Cancer.

“It has been a dream partnership and we look forward to continuing our work together.” The Brushes with Cancer program is a unique celebration that pairs accomplished Artists with Inspirations, who have been touched by cancer as previvors, survivors, or caregivers.

As the Inspirations share their twist on cancer – stories, feelings, and experiences – the artists create a unique work of art that represents their personal journey with cancer.

The unique artwork from recent Brushes With Cancer programs can be seen here, “It is an honor to host this program and exhibition at our Art Department Gallery,” said Thomas Pyrzewski, the Director of Galleries and Special Programming at Wayne State University.

“As an artist, mentor, and gallery director, I have become familiar with the positive outcomes of the Brushes With Cancer program and feel it is very beneficial for Wayne State University students, alumni, and colleagues who have been impacted by cancer.”

In 2023, there are two other Brushes With Cancer programs already in progress. This includes a licensed program with the Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and an open program, which features Inspirations and Artists from around the world.

If you would like to bring Brushes with Cancer to your region or city, or if you have any questions on corporate partnerships and licensed programs, please send an email to
