An Evening with Nicki Muller
Thursday March 15, 2012, 6:30 PM
Gifts of Time is teaming up with The Painting Club to host a painting activity for students with Nicki Muller, a 21-year-old patient at NYU. When Nicki was a young girl, she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Since then, she has used art and writing to explore her emotions and her experience with cancer. Last fall, Nicki's exhibit, "Bone to Brain," was featured in the NYU Medical Science Building (MSB) Gallery.
This year, Nicki was diagnosed with a high grade glioma (a brain tumor), for which she is currently undergoing chemotherapy. She continues to document her experience on her website.
Nicki is a pediatric and brain cancer awareness advocate. She has graciously accepted our invitation to speak with medical students about her battle with cancer and to then paint with us.
Paint and canvases will be provided, and the activity will center around the theme of expressing pain and illness through art.
After the activity, there will be a contest for the three best paintings. Submissions will be judged by Nicki, and prizes will be awarded to the winners.
