Cancer Research UK: DNA Trail

 

On 29 June 2015, Pilar Enrich’s DNA inspired sculpture ‘Creativity For Survival’ was unveiled to the public at Trafalgar Square as part of Cancer Research UK’s DNA Trail campaign to raise awareness and funds for the Francis Crick Institute, a world-leading centre of biomedical research and innovation in London. Enrich’s piece was one of 21 inspired double helix sculptures on show across London during summer 2015, before being auctioned at Christies in September. All the money raised went towards the £100million that Cancer Research UK pledged to raise for the Crick.
