Magee Patients Paint with Local Artist for Black History Month

By: John Dillard and Courtney Caprara

To commemorate Black History Month, the Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC Black History Committee coordinated a series of events for patients and staff, including an art party for past and present cancer patients. Local artist Tracy Lynn of Creating Smiles led a group of patients in a therapeutic afternoon of painting. Each artist took home her own unique version of Tracy’s painting “Blushing Flamingo.”
