Teen Art Show 2011

Peter Barta

Teen patients displayed their artistic talents earlier this month during the 9th annual Teen Art Show. The event is organized by the St. Jude Child Life Program. Families and staff lined the corridors in the hospital’s Teen Art Gallery for the unveiling ceremony. This year’s show, themed “My Real World at St. Jude,” featured art in a variety of mediums from more than 35 teen patients, representing all clinics and services.

The Teen Art Show, which originated in 2003, is a formal gathering that presents work from patients, some of whom were in attendance to reveal their pieces.
