Huntington Museum of Art to Present “The Bodice Project” Exhibition
The Huntington Museum of Art will host The Bodice Project, which is a traveling sculpture exhibition about breast cancer survivors and their emotional healing post breast cancer, from April 24 through July 25, 2021.
Learn more about the presentation of this exhibit at the Huntington Museum of Art when HMA posts a video discussion with Cynthia Fraula-Hahn, President of The Bodice Project, on its Facebook page on May 25, 2021, at 7 p.m. This online presentation is part of the Huntington Museum of Art’s 4th Tuesday Tour program.
“The goal of The Bodice Project is to aid in the emotional healing of those women and men facing the challenges of breast cancer and to open the eyes and hearts of others,” said Cynthia Fraula-Hahn, President of The Bodice Project. “Nearly everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way. The Bodice Project sheds light on the unique and individual stories of their journeys through the healing power of art.”
This exhibition is a project that brings together artists, breast cancer survivors, patients and the public in a unique and meaningful way. Artists from the Mid-Atlantic area have created torso sculptures of breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies or reconstructive surgery. When presented to the public, these beautiful works evoke a range of emotion, from empathy to solace.
This exhibit is presented with support from The Katherine & Herman Pugh Exhibitions Endowment.
