The Mosaic Project
The American Cancer Society offers a place where cancer patients and their caregivers can find help and hope when home is far away from the treatment they need—an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. The AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center in Boston, MA, offers free lodging and a supportive community in a comfortable environment for those undergoing treatment.
Various missions help make this vision a reality. One such mission is “art as therapy.” When guests are engaged creatively, they focus less on their troubles and can think and act in a more positive manner. The mosaic project was designed to meet this end. As many as 60 guests contributed to the mosaics, chatting through the night while working together toward a common, cooperative goal. Whether large or small, these projects served as therapy for many and gave the guests a creative outlet during their time of need.
The mosaic pictured on the cover of the Digest, along with several others created at the Hope Lodge, served as auction items at the American Cancer Society: 2013 Boston Key Gala to raise funds for the organization.
