The WVU Health Sciences Center welcomed The Bodice Project; a sculptural exhibition that promotes emotional healing for breast cancer survivors

Bodice Project

The WVU Health Sciences Center welcomed The Bodice Project to Morgantown – February 19-22nd at the Erickson Alumni Center. The Bodice Project is a sculptural exhibition that promotes emotional healing for women and men facing the challenges of breast cancer and their life after treatment. Each piece of art is as unique and powerful as the women and men who have survived breast cancer treatment and are left with the question; “Who am I now?” Dr. Clay Marsh provided opening comments for the exhibit and explained the relationship of art, science and healing as well as the impact that an exhibit like this has on a community. A new piece of artwork was added by Jennifer Allen, an adjunct professor from the WVU College of Creative Arts, in memory of her friend that lost her battle with breast cancer. Students, faculty, staff and members of the community found the exhibit to be emotionally impactful.

The Bodice Project is currently on display at the Stifle Fine Arts Center in Wheeling, WV and will be on display until April 19th.
