ArtBra New Haven will hold its annual auction of art bras and fine art pieces inspired by, and which speak to, the experience of breast cancer. The event will be an Afternoon Tea on Sunday, October 6, 2013, 2 p.m.–5 p.m., at the Omni Hotel in New Haven, Connecticut. All proceeds from the event will benefit under- & uninsured patients of the Breast Center at the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven.
Submissions may be either wearable or non-wearable artwork. Pieces can be based on ready-made bras, or be completely fabricated. Works can be an expression of your own experience, in support of someone, in honor of a survivor, or in memoriam. They can be serious or lighthearted. We are looking for works in any medium or mixture. We ask that each artist include a brief statement about their piece and its inspiration.
Thirty to forty pieces of wearable art will be auctioned in a live, modeled runway show. Other works will be set up and sold in the silent-auction gallery.
Tickets are $50 each. If you have eight or more, you can buy a table which will be reserved in your name.
