One of the artists, Bryce Nanez says he creates art with the sole purpose of giving back to the community. Twelve of his paintings portraying horses are up for grabs. “Horses are synonymous with strength so I hope that the message kind of relays to the patients here at the Cancer Center,” Nanez said.
