"Can you make hair for me?" is a collaborative photographic art project by artist and Lesley graduate student Eileen Powers (MFA Visual Arts) with a goal to bring joy and levity to those undergoing chemotherapy and other cancer treatments.

After finding out she had cancer, Powers looked to her artwork as a way of helping others

"I decided to create this this project, 'can you make hair for me?', and invite artists, friends and supporters to find ways to make hair for me that I could then photograph and share. The goal is to show that loss is real, but our ingenuity in dealing with loss is what makes us stronger, more compassionate humans." 

In this collaborative virtual exhibit, hair and headpieces created by Expressive Arts Therapy Lesley graduate students for Powers are exhibited alongside her photographs.

Artwork is on view virtually from October 8, 2020 - February 1, 2021. Access the virtual gallery here.
