After much stress and determination, I finally finished the bra!
This mannequin that was used was already in the Studio and was not built or used while I was creating this piece so it doesn't fit as well as it would on an actual person.
This bra is on display at Studio 1219 in Port Huron Michigan as part of the "The Art of Being a Woman" Exhibit. It will be on display through October 27. If you live in the area, please come in and see it and the other bras that will be in a Silent Auction on October 27th. Half of the funds raised will go to the Studio 1219 Breast Cancer Fund which assists in helping underinsured and UNinsured women in the are with Mammograms and Breast Cancer Treatment that they might otherwise not be able to afford. The remaining funds raised will benefit the Studio general operations. Vote for this bra at the Studio. Votes are $1 each or 15 for $10.
We also have two galleries filled with art by local women that is also for sale to benefit Breast Cancer & raise money for Studio 1219.
Not everyone wins. But with research and support, a cure can be found soon.
If your local area has a Breast Cancer Event, please support research and treatment.
Please click on the the Art of Being a Woman link above for times and dates for all of the events at Studio 1219 during the month of October. I will be at every one. If you don't see me... I assure you, I'm there.
All in all, this project was a labor of love.
The love I have for my two Aunts: survivors of Breast Cancer, the love I have for others who did not survive, and the love and support I have from family and friends for the Art I hold so dear.
Thank you... and please, GO MEDIEVAL on BREAST CANCER!
