Previous Event

ArtCAN 2016

The fourth ArtCAN was a unique and original fund raising event that featured a fine art auction and original performances from selected acclaimed performing and visual artist from around the world who have been closely affected by cancer.

ArtCAN took place on Saturday, November 19, 2016 and was hosted at The Estate By Legendary Events.  Two highly acclaimed curatorial panels comprised of esteemed performing and visual art professionals were assembled to review and select those artists to be featured at this year’s event.  We developed the principal idea that art CAN heal, art CAN empower and art CAN impact a great number of people.  ArtCAN brings together an entire global community of cancer survivors and those affected by cancer, standing together to fight this deadly disease.
