What:              ArtWorks is bringing its Traveling Art Show to UMDNJ- Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, NJ. This show features a collection of works created by children and young adults from dozens of healthcare facilities in the Tri-State area.


Why:               ArtWorks is dedicated to the establishment and support of creative and performing art exhibitions, titled Express Yourself, that feature the works of children and young adults suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses. Siblings, who are also tremendously affected by their own sibling’s illness, submit artwork into the show. These exhibits recognize the creative arts therapies as an integral component of the recovery process.


Who:               Children who suffer from chronic and life-threatening illnesses, and their siblings, created the pieces on display in the Traveling Art Show. These participants come from more than 20 healthcare agencies in New York and New Jersey.
