Help bring in the holiday season with FRANK!  Once again, FRANK will be collaborating with the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the N.C. Cancer Hospital to collect new art supplies for the Expressive Arts Program.  The program gives UNC cancer patients and caregivers the opportunity to express themselves through art. 

On December 8th at the Franklin Street location, FRANK will host a holiday party and kickoff event, there will be a bin for art supply donations. Items may be dropped off prior to the event and throughout the month of December.  Please contact Natalie Knox, gallery manager, at 919-636-4135 or with questions or for more information about the event.
