Artwork by Duke Children’s patients for sale

The Herald-Sun recently attended an Arts for Life gallery exhibit in downtown Durham, where young patients at Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center had their artwork on display and for sale.

These young patients, while they’re going through chemotherapy or waiting for transplants, visit the art table run by Arts for Life volunteers and let their imaginations go wild. 

“Just giving them an outlet to kind of be whoever they want to be and process things while they’re there is really important to them,” said Mary Margaret Fulk, Durham Arts for Life program director.

Some of those pieces can still be purchased on the Arts for Life website. Visit keepsake.aflnc.org/products to find jewelry, note cards and prints.
