Manchester Art Association exhibit promotes breast cancer awareness

“Everyone has a story,” said Christiane O’Brien, president of the Manchester Art Association, when talking about the MAA’s current exhibit for breast cancer awareness, “Paint the Ta Tas,” on exhibit at Manchester Memorial Hospital and Manchester Town Hall through the end of the year. “Art and healing go together,” added O’Brien. Many hospitals now feature art exhibits to promote this connection.

MAA utilized Facebook to put a call out to all artists to participate in the exhibit, which was meant to promote breast cancer awareness and celebrate those touched by cancer. Thirty-five plastic torsos, 10 of which are in the male form, were given to the artists to create their own message. Other art media, such as painting, photography and mixed media, are also included in the show.
