Celebrating Cancer Survivors

Cancer survivors are invited to attend our free art classes called Expressions of Art & Hope. We have partnered with LUX Center for the Arts to offer you the opportunity to explore a creative process of self-expression and reflection to help you meet the challenges of diagnosis, treatment and beyond.

Due to equipment needed, classes are held at the LUX Center for the Arts, located at 2601 N 48th Street in Lincoln.
