Cancer Never Had Me: Views by Artists is a juried exhibit featuring 45 artworks by contemporary artists affected by cancer, and includes the artists’ accounts of the impact of cancer on their lives. The second exhibition, Artists Who Had Cancer: Works from the Hillstrom and Shogren-Meyer Collections features 32 works mostly from the first half of the 20th century, by artists who succumbed to the disease, all drawn from the permanent collection of the Museum or lent by collectors Daniel Shogren and Susan Meyer.
