Amgen Oncology has teamed up with local Chicago artists to bring science to life through hand-drawn, 3D chalk art installations throughout the city, timed to the upcoming American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting at McCormick Place May 31 to June 4, 2019. Amgen Oncology will be highlighting how unique science can make a difference in cancer care through a collaboration with two Chicago artists, Nate Baranowski and Shaun Hays. The chalk art installations will unfold June 1-2, 2019, and will showcase Amgen Oncology’s bispecific T cell engager (BiTE®) technology, which is designed to harness the immune system to fight cancer. For every photo or social media post shared of the artwork using #BiTEtheEngager, Amgen Oncology will contribute to a science-based classroom campaign on DonorsChoose.org to benefit Chicago Public Schools.
Chalk art installations will be hand-drawn at the following locations in Chicago:
- Saturday, June 1, noon to 5 p.m. CT: Field Museum Park Bridge Underpass — Roosevelt Road
- Sunday, June 2, 1-5 p.m. CT: Plaza in front of the Shedd Aquarium — 200 S. Lake Shore Drive
