Breast Cancer Awareness Body Painting Project - Art Loft TV Coverage
The Breast Cancer Awareness Body Painting Project: A Fine Art & Photography Essay of Survivors will be featured in a TV segment on Art Loft. Watch the body painting of our two most recent survivors as they are transformed into their portraits.
The segment will initially air on 10/06/2015 @ 7:30pm EST on South Florida Local Channel 2 WPBT Public Television (check listings for additional airings)
The segment will feature behind the scenes process of transforming these inspiring survivors into their portraits to be included in the project final book. The initial goal of the project is a coffee table book featuring 50 survivors and their stories. Five years into the process the segment features the body painting of survivors number 31 and 32 (Karen and Danielle respectivly)
The Breast Cancer Awareness Body Painting Project: A Fine Art & Photography Essay of Survivors is an all Breast Cancer Survivor project for awareness, fundraising, inspiration and healing worldwide. This is a form of art therapy for both the participants and the viewers alike.
All the designs are custom made for each survivor and relate in some way to their character traits, personality, passions, interests or other aspects of their story. All of these images are created in a way that also translates to the larger breast cancer experience. Describing a myriad of moods, emotions, thoughts and fears in common to many survivors. Some themes are light, positive and inspiring while others may be a bit deeper, darker and thought provoking – still others single out a specific issue such as early detection, or genetics.”
