2017 Making A Mark Opening Exhibit – The Periwinkle Foundation

Saturday, October 7, 2017 | 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. Add to Calendar

The Periwinkle Foundation invites Houstonians to experience Making a Mark®, an exhibition of art and creative writing by children and teens touched by cancer and blood disorders at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers.

More than 300 moving works of original art by young patients as well as larger-than-life art pieces made in collaboration with local artist Jon Clark will adorn Texas Children’s auxiliary bridge before traveling to other venues throughout the country. The exhibit is in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month in September.

Patients worked with Jon Clark over the spring and summer while receiving treatment to create this year’s collaborative piece “Flourish” using repurposed medical supplies. Each year, Periwinkle invites a guest artist guides and curates a final piece of art for display. Clark joins a distinguished group of past guest artists, including Elaine Bradford, John Palmer, Kelly Gale Amen, Anat Ronen and Reginald Adams.
