Celebrating creativity

11th Annual Teen Art Show at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Imagination and creativity melded with self-expression as Nate Owens and other teen patients presented their artwork during the 11th annual Teen Art Show. Organized by St. Jude Child Life, the show included patients’ representations of their journeys through painting, sketches, photos, music, poems and even a baked cake. Families and staff gathered to hear patients share the personal meaning behind their works. More than 50 pieces were unveiled at this year’s show. The artwork will be displayed throughout the year in the hospital’s Teen Art Gallery.
