AOC Friends | BCABPP
SX Liquors commissioned several artists and sponsored an art bottle exhibit and auction for Art Basel Miami 2011 to benefit The South Florida Breast Cancer Association. Michael Colano’s (see below) creation featured printed strips of 22 survivor images from BCABPP intricately wrapped and decoupaged to the supplied glass bottle.
We love seeing curves expressed in such a visually stunning, sexy message bottle by Colano. Learn how these 22 strips of breast cancer survivor images came to life in the BCABPP project; AND how you can order their new quarterly magazine Survivors.
Anne’s friend Ellen Gondola holds her copy of the premiere issue of Survivors magazine, standing between her portrait “Bamboo & Butterflies” and Melanie Joy Mezzancello Singh as “Stardust” at Michael Colano’s Uncommon Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
AOC responded to Facebook actions to censor the images produced by the Breast Cancer Awareness Body Painting Project (BCABPP), basically classifying these emotionally powerful images as pornography. The entire situation is insane and still hasn’t been fully resolved. Read original article.
‘Survivors’ is focused on the lives of breast cancer survivors, but their life lessons are motivational and apply to all of us. ‘Survivors’ is available in digital only for $4.50 and in a print+digital combo for $24.95.
