The Oncology Expressive Arts Program at N.C. Cancer Hospital is a community outreach program from the FRANK art Gallery in Chapel Hill. Every holiday season, 94 artists assemble a small mountain of art supplies at the gallery to help spread cheer through the arts, and allow this incredible program to begin their year off with a freshly-stocked supply of materials. On Dec. 3, FRANK will host a community holiday party to launch the event. All are welcome to attend, and encouraged to bring their art supplies to add to the bin that night.
