Fun with Pink

It was glitter and glue when patients, visitors, and Dana-Farber staff gathered on Oct. 4 to create art on an unusual canvas – bras. Hosted by Friends’ Place and Dana-Farber’s Creative Arts Program, the “Decorate a Brassiere” art therapy event allowed attendees to creatively honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Patients and staff decorated bras as part of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Friends’ Place Decorate a Brassiere Event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Banding together, wielding glue guns, feathers, and ribbons, the artists were living proof of the message one survivor painted on her bra: “does not fight alone.”
