Opening Night Preview “Uncommon Knowledge” Art Exhibition

September 21, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm MST


Be among the first to preview this dynamic collaborative exhibition, which embodies the stories of 21 patients as interpreted by over 12 local literary and visual artists.
Roche and the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance will host a one-of-a-kind art exhibition focused on understanding the value of regular disease screenings and their associated diagnostic tests.

The exhibition highlights the journeys of 21 Roche colleagues across the United States who have experienced a disease diagnosis that impacted their lives. The show hopes to change the way we take notice of and manage our health. You’ll see a myriad of choices that led to very distinct outcomes.

“Uncommon Knowledge” will make its grand debut with a gallery opening night reception on Thursday, September 21, 2023 at the Ventana Gallery at Roche Tissue Diagnostics.
Walking into the gallery space, you’ll come face-to-face with each of these patients’ stories. But that’s not all — we’ve paired each of these patients with both a literary and a visual artist, who, over the last several months, have created pieces that tell each person’s story creatively and uniquely.

The public is invited to this free admission event from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to experience the exhibition with the artists and patients they were paired with. There will even be a live performance of several of the literary pieces at 6 p.m. The event will also feature light hors d’ouevres, refreshments, and live music.
