In celebration of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Week, Hope Chest, a collaborative traveling sculpture exhibit about hope and the stories of genetic cancers will open at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center on September 28th with a special reception. The exhibit is created by FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered) local Outreach Coordinator, Rachel Householder.
I dropped into the studio this morning to see the work and took a few shots. It’s a beautifully strong grouping with lots of presence… the artists who painted the work and the women whose casts they were, both.
Here are some of the completed Hope Chest pieces, painted by local AZ artists.
Note: artist name appears above the work. Some shots include front, back or additional side shots. I’ll update with two more.
