Portraits Gala

Part of the mission of the Illini 4000 is to document the American cancer experience, which we accomplish through our work with the Portraits Project. As part of the Portraits Project, we interview all sorts of people we meet while cycling across the country who have had some sort of experience with cancer, be they survivors, patients, doctors, caregivers, friends, family, or any other sort of connection they may have. These interviews are then processed and presented on the Portraits Project website (currently under construction) or presented in an art-gallery setting in locations around campus or elsewhere.

On Sunday April 6th, the Portraits Project will be holding a Spring Gala, featuring a number of the portraits collected over the years as well as a brunch for all attendees. It will be held at the Levis Center (919 W. Illinois St, Urbana IL) from 11-1pm. Tickets are 20 dollars, and be purchased by donating through the PayPal button on THIS page.

We hope to see you there!
