Wall of Hope unveiled at Gallery 1037
Stuart Klein, Executive Director of the Proton Therapy Institute, Barbara Holmes-Fryefield, Artist-in-Residence

Reddi-Arts and Gallery 1037 kicked off the January/February show “Wall of Hope” with a reception late last month. The show, in conjunction with the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute, features artwork by cancer patients, their families, friends, staff and artists, as well as busts by Riverside sculptor Cliff Leonard.
The University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute Artist-in-Residence and Ortega resident Barbara Holmes-Fryefield encouraged patients, their families, staff, and artists to create artworks on 6×6 blocks of wood inspired by the word “Hope.”
The collection of wood blocks created by patients and their families benefit their treatment though a creative outlet. A wall of wood blocks at Reddi-Arts/Gallery 1037 gives viewers an opportunity to be lifted by the spirit of hope.
The University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute is the first treatment center in the Southeast U.S. to offer proton therapy. Florida residents, as well as patients from the region, the country and the world, have access to a new cancer treatment option delivered in a supportive, healing environment, with all the resources of a non-profit major academic medical center.
