The annual art show organized by the Graduate Student Council was held Aug. 3-7, giving students, faculty and staff the opportunity to showcase the talents that they are perhaps less known for – those that take them outside of the classroom, labs and workplace.
The show featured paintings, photography, jewelry and other art, all made by members of the Baylor family, some of who have been participating in the event for many years. This year marked the 14th annual showcase of art.
It benefits the Arts in Medicine program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center, with all artists donating some or all of their proceeds to the program. They are required to donate at least 40 percent of their earnings.
“This year, we had 55 artists participate and 450 art pieces, with 17 of these artists donating 100 percent of proceeds to charity,” said Marissa Scavuzzo, a graduate student and one of the organizers of the event.
The art show raised more than $5,500, with about $2,550 going back to the artists and almost $3,000 to the Arts in Medicine program.
