3rd Annual ArtCAN…Find a Cure
The Joseph C. Monastra (JCM) Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research will host its 3rd Annual fund raiser ArtCAN on Saturday, November 9, 2013 at the Atlanta Ballet's Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre.
ArtCAN 2013 features an unprecedented collaboration of the performance and visual arts of artists from around the globe who are cancer survivors or have had their lives affected by cancer.
ArtCAN 2013 is an evening of hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, a keynote address, raffle prizes, music, artistic performances from our newly formed partners and selected artists as well as a fine art silent auction.
In years past the artists have come from as close as inside Atlanta and as far away as Korea, South Africa and Ireland.
The event will raise money and awareness for pancreatic cancer. ArtCAN 2013 will have two esteemed curatorial panels. For the visual arts, returning for the third year are the following leaders in the Atlanta art community: Marianne Lambert, Jerry Cullum, Timothy Tew and Hope Cohn. The members of the performance arts curatorial panel will be announced soon.
Hear what our esteemed ArtCAN curatorial panel had to say about the ArtCAN artists from 2011 and 2012.
"There are some extraordinary works in this auction, including some that I have judged in the past to be worthy of museum exhibition."
“It is a pleasure to work with the curatorial staff to select artworks to be included in this year’s ArtCAN exhibition. I am impressed with Pamela Monastra’s passion, dedication and her desire to help others and find a cure for pancreatic cancer. This is what the creative impulse is all about. The team has worked to give viewers a broad array of creative visions by artists who have been affected by cancer in some manner. I hope viewers will be inspired and will open their hearts and pocketbooks. Together we can do anything and this is what ArtCAN is all about. ”
“The work comes from the heart and it shows. Rich and thoughtful, it touches the spirit and celebrates life. Thank you ArtCAN artists, for sharing your work, your stories, and giving to this noble cause.”
