Bustes en Rose: Art + Fashion Against Breast Cancer is a unique, extremely creative, and engaging fundraising event for the fight against breast cancer. By combining elements of fine art and fashion design, participating artists and designers have created unique bustiers and corsets to help raise funds for the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force.
Our artists’ statement: “As artists and designers we believe breast cancer is not selective. It does not care about color, race, religion, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, or financial status. It is a disease that affects everyone, even men. We hear from the victim and the survivor, we hear from their families and the various support groups but now it is time to hear from the creative minds. The visual representation of breast cancer is much more than a pink ribbon. It is human, it is emotion, it is color, and it is black and white. Now it is time for creative minds to come together take a stand and create awareness about how breast cancer affects us.”
