"Healing with Art" is an exhibit based on the belief that art contributes to and reinforces the healing process for patients with cancer. Works of art created by a wide range of New England artists now hang in waiting rooms and patient exam rooms in Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Nashua, Manchester, and Lebanon.

The artwork, chosen by a diverse group of artists, medical professionals, and community members, will hang in the cancer centers for six months.

Opening receptions will be held in each location. Come enjoy hors d'oeuvres and refreshments and wonderful local art! The public is welcome.
