Welcome to the Art of Surviving 2021 Gallery!
The Art of Surviving, sponsored by the Raymond A. Wood Foundation
, is a juried online art competition held in May every year during Brain Tumor Awareness Month and celebrates the art of the brain tumor community — survivors, caregivers and family members.
Many brain tumor survivors use art as a way to cope with the challenges that come with treatment, a means to calm and focus an injured brain or an opportunity to express their experiences.
This exhibition is judged by a jury of professional artists and creative writers. Cash prizes are awarded for best in category by age group.
$3,000 in Cash Prizes Awarded
$500 Grand Prize Award (Brain tumor patients & survivors only)
$1,800 in Awards for Best in Category by age group (Brain tumor patients & survivors only)
$700 in People’s Choice Awards for each age group including caregivers and family members.
