Artfull Bras

Okay, I know this has absolutely nothing to do with children's literature, poetry or teaching, but I just had to share this creative idea for a worthy cause.
Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit consists of fifty original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous, and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors.

This exhibit will tour SC until Oct '09 at which time individual Artfull Bras will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Best Chance Network, a program to provide care and treatment of uninsured women across the state who are diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer.
Visit the Artfull Bras Project to see these amazing creations. My favorites are Buttons and Bows and Boobs (p. 1) and Look at Them Melons (p. 2). Which one(s) do you love?


  1. Wow! I wish this exhibit were traveling outside of South Carolina. They should send it on a cross-country tour.

    My favorites are on Page 2 - Mardi Gras and The Bra from Hell. I have to admit, Support Your Favorite Boob made me laugh out loud.

  2. Hahah! The melons -- make me long for summertime. Not that I'd be sporting a top like that anytime soon, but I love melons. (*snicker*)

  3. That bra is stunning! Will have to look for this exhibit when I next visit family in SC - and you can bet I'm forwarding the info to that family!
