Liv thru Art honors the young life of a beautiful daughter, friend, and artist Olivia.

Each month the volunteers with Liv thru Art choose a different medium for the kids struggling with cancer to enjoy. Then annually, a Liv thru Art Show & Auction is held at the Akron Art Museum to display the art they have created all year and to auction any pieces they choose. All the money raised goes right back into Liv thru Art.

I am also grateful that in memory of Olivia & to honor her love for art, Liv thru Art was created under Project Ed Bear and by Susan’s creativity!  Liv thru Art hosts monthly art parties for children with cancer and survivors of cancer. An amazing way to honor Olivia & her love of art & the joy it brought to her!  And now it does the same for children currently going through the same struggles.”
