Artists focused their work on this year’s theme of ‘What Happens After’. Each original piece of art is a window into the artists’ personal journey to find strength and courage during a vulnerable time, whether as a patient, family member, friend or healthcare worker. The art show demonstrates the value of the creativity that arises within trying circumstances and it serves as a connection within the medical population and the community.

The CompleteLife Program offers complimentary therapies including art, music, yoga and massage therapies to patients at IU Health Simon Cancer Center and University Hospital. The CompleteLife Program is made possible by philanthropic efforts of the IU Health Foundation and Riley Cheer Guild as well as support from Indiana University Health.

A special thank you to the participating artists for their willingness to share their work and stories and to the art show sponsor, the Heroes Foundation, for their generous donation to the CompleteLife Program through a gift to the Indiana University Health Foundation.

While the CompleteLife Program offers both art therapy services and hosts the annual art show, art created during art therapy sessions are kept confidential unless directly requested by patients to display and share their work.
