ArtBreak Awards

ArtBreak is the largest student arts festival in the South, and it is a celebration of the creativity that flourishes in our children.  Every year, Feist-Weiller Cancer Center physicians select their favorite art pieces from the many student art submissions at ArtBreak.  The selected pieces are displayed for one year in the patient rooms of the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center and Hematology and Oncology Units of University Health.

Each year, Feist-Weiller Cancer Centers hosts a reception honoring our student artists in the Tiger Room of the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center.
