    WomenStories first Fundraiser

    On Friday, March 7, at Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center, WomenStories put on its first fundraising event, an extravaganza of three dimensional Art Bras, Art Auction and Gala Reception.

    Forty local artists participated, making 45 bras, everything from a giant mobile made of underwires to a padded bra made of varicolored pom-poms, to a working grille on wheels called the Bra-B-Que with two grates each caped with a breast shaped cover. Close to 400 hundred people attended, exclaimed over the pieces of art, munched on delectable food, and drank delicious wine. Almost all the artists were present, each with a guest. Their ages ranged from 16 to 83. Meeting them and being able to discuss the inspirations for their bras, added another dimension to the evening.
