Making A Mark:
An Exhibition of Art by Children Touched by Cancer and Blood Disorders

Texas Children's Cancer Center, the Periwinkle Foundation and the International Museum of Art & Science are pleased to present the 12th annual "Making A Mark," an exhibit of art by children touched by cancer and blood disorders. This unique display features the works of young artists, some from the Rio Grande Valley, whose lives have been touched by cancer or related blood disorders and provides a focus on the personal issues that surround childhood cancer as expressed by the children themselves.

"Making A Mark" is open to children from all treatment centers and has attracted submissions from around the world. To highlight Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we are proud to display many of these entries in a special exhibition at the Museum. The Texas Children's Cancer Center is proud to bring this exhibit to the Valley. They have received generous contributions from the community that makes this possible. The real stars, however, are the young artists who have produced this moving exhibit -- not just for their art but for their examples of courage and love.

"Marking A Mark" will remain at the Museum through January 12, 2003.
