Surgi Dolls represent an intersection of healing and creativity through textiles: Project Sunshine gives children blank dolls of diverse skin tones to make their own, to travel with them through their medical journey and provide a sense of comfort and control. By participating in the auction, you could take home your very own collectible Surgi Doll - these art objects are not for hospital use. The auction will culminate in a ticketed event at the Museum on April 11, 7-10 pm, with special guest Sally Siren.

See the dolls at the TMC, 55 Centre Ave, Tues. Apr. 9, 11am-5pm and Wed. Apr. 10, 11am-8pm for free with membership or if you are a friend of MAAD or a doll creator (all OCAD U students are members). The online auction is on now until 9:30pm on Thurs. Apr. 11th. Bid or get tickets at: biddingforgood.ca/projectsunshinecanada
