Hero’s Journey™ Art
Connecting the Clinical Trial Community
The Hero’s Journey™ Art project is a collaboration initiated by Eli Lilly and Company and the clinical trial community to honor clinical trial participants and raise awareness for the importance of participation. Lilly commissioned artist John Magnan to build crowd sourced sculptures to call attention to the importance of clinical research and launch a unique means of connecting and sharing clinical research stories. Patients, caregivers, physicians and scientists shared their thoughts and feelings about clinical research through personalized wooden “bricks”. More than 1,000 of these decorated wooden bricks were used to form three Hero’s Journey™ Art sculptures.
“Departure”, one of three sculptures within the Hero's Journey™ Art project, has been gifted to Greater Gift by Lilly and located in Winston-Salem.
