Participating artists have made wearable breast art prostheses to be a part of a woman’s attire, a fashion accessory, adornment, and statement. Art pieces will be displayed alongside examples of the way breast cancer research addresses issues expressed in the artwork. The exhibition is intended to create an avenue for health education through art and to afford an opportunity for vision, growth, and change. By combining art and science, The Art of Healing Breast Cancer: A Union of Science and Design bridges the gap between facts and understanding.
This annual installation, timed to coincide with University Picnic Day, is a lively survey of student talent and creativity that reflects the multi-disciplinary breadth of the Design Program’s course work.
