The Artful Bras Project
Bras for a 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 2009 at which time individual Artful Bras will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Best Chance Network, a program that helps women ages 40 to 64 who need to be screened for breast and cervical cancer, but do not have insurance or have insurance that only covers hospital care, and who meet certain income guidelines.

The bras come prepared for display on their own hangers and are available for exhibit across the state of South Carolina. The exhibit is available until October of 2009.

Make your own Artful Bra!

All that is needed is your imagination.  QSC quilters used a size 36C bra.
Inexpensive bras can be purchased at discount stores.
 The bras were covered both inside and out (including straps)
When finished tack it to a padded hanger -- or wear it.

 


QSC has produced a CD/PowerPoint presentation of the ARTFUL BRA PROJECT for purchase by individuals and groups alike.  A narrative of the inspiration behind the construction of each entry will provide meaningful insight and share with the viewer poignant memories of loved ones who have survived and those we have lost to breast cancer.

A minimum donation of $35.00 for each CD purchased is required. Funds go to Best Chance Network, which provides services and screenings for uninsured women who have been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer. 

Please send a check or money order in the amount of your donation, along with your name, mailing address, including zip code, and a day time phone number and e-mail address to:
