Illuminations Opening Reception Tuesday 3/31 is Cancelled

We have made the decision to cancel the March 31st Illuminations Opening Reception in keeping with the Cancer Center’s efforts to limit the number of people visiting the hospital and encourage social distancing. We will continue honoring the artists exhibiting with us on our website and through our social media channels. Our next opening reception is currently scheduled for June 23, 2020 where we will plan to honor participants in both the Spring and Summer shows. Stay tuned for further details. For additional information/questions, please contact Program Manager Megan Carleton 617-650-1143 or

Samples of Work from the Current Exhibition

Illuminations is a rotating art exhibit housed in the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and many of its affiliate locations. The exhibit is intended to offer enlightenment and encouragement to patients, families, staff and friends of the Cancer Center as they receive care, provide care, or accompany loved ones. Illuminations has transformed generic waiting areas into a virtual art gallery of revolving exhibits that feature works by numerous regional and national artists. The work of several artists, representing various media, is on display for four months at a time.
