Terminally Ill Artist’s Last Wish For Exhibition Of His Work In Santa Barbara To Happen Starting Thursday Night

Posted on Thursday, December 1, 2011 12:29am

A terminally ill man’s last wish is going to come true in Santa Barbara, even though he didn’t live to be a part of it.  The man became an artist in the last years of his life, and wanted to have an exhibition to show his work to the community.

Some non-profit groups, volunteers, and a Santa Barbara store are making it happen today.  KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story.

The exhibition debuts from 5-8 p.m. 12/1, and runs through the holidays at 33 Jewels at El Paseo, which is at 814 State Street, in Downtown Santa Barbara.

The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is also holding a special art exhibition, called “Art Heals”.  It will take place from 4:30-6:30 Friday 12/2, at the Cancer Center.  Click on the link for more details:  www.ccsb.org/calendar/view/221/2011/12/2/
