More than 100 cancer survivors came together on Saturday to celebrate life at the Fresno Art Museum.

This event, known as the Paula Project, is put on by the Art of Life Cancer Foundation. It's only open to survivors to help them connect with other people who have gone through similar experiences.

The group created artwork using glass as a medium. Organizers say art helps people see the beauty in life once again, after beating cancer.

"But for them to be able to look at life through a new perspective and really capture the art of living and celebrate that, it's so special," said Janelle Higton with the Art of Life Cancer Foundation.

All of the artwork made on Saturday, as well as other pieces made in the program, will go on display September 28 at the Fresno State Satellite Student Union building. The unveiling will be open to the public.

Our own Action News anchor Liz Harrison was a guest speaker at Saturday's event.
