THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Artistic creations and creative writing by children receiving treatment at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers and their siblings are now on display at The Woodlands Children’s Museum.
The collection, the Making a Mark traveling exhibit, celebrates self-expression and its ability to empower children affected by cancer.
The museum will host Making a Mark through Monday, Jan. 13, 2020.
“This is our fifth consecutive year to host this important exhibit,” Executive Director Angela Colton said. “We encourage families to explore Making a Mark together and talk about the artists’ creations. It’s an excellent opportunity to help children develop empathy and talk about how children might feel and respond during difficult situations.”
Making a Mark is a presentation of the Periwinkle Foundation, a Houston-based nonprofit organization that provides programs for children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
In addition to bringing Making a Mark to The Woodlands Children’s Museum, the foundation is inviting little ones and their families to participate in the Postcards From the Road program. Through this effort, those who view the traveling exhibit can write encouraging postcards for exhibit artists. The Periwinkle Foundation handles the postcard deliveries.
The exhibit will be displayed at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77381.
Making a Mark is included in the museum’s regular $7 admission price for visitors age 1 and older.
The Woodlands Children’s Museum is recommended for ages 7 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
