City of Hope, Stylus Salon and Ghost Gallery are working together to organize aÂ benefit eventÂ for Saturday, September 11th calledÂ â€œCelebrate the Shape of Life.”Â This specific fundraising event is part of the larger Seattle Walk for Hope (www.walk4hope.org)Â which will be onÂ Sunday, October 3, 2010. Â Both events support women’s cancer research and treatment programs at City of Hope. Artists are being askedÂ to decorate, design orÂ modify aÂ Corset or Slip, or to create a work of art that involves an image of a corset or slip, which will be exhibited at Stylus during September and October. The theme celebrates Women: their strength, struggle with cancer, survival, beauty, power, etc.Â The artwork would be donated, with proceeds fromÂ sales benefiting City of Hope.
Deadline for the completion & deliveryÂ ofÂ work would beÂ AugustÂ 31st.Â Interested artists are asked to emailÂ firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ by July 15th if theyÂ would like to participate. Artists are also being asked to include, if applicable,Â a brief story of personal experiences they’ve had with womenÂ in their life (or themselves)Â being affected by cancer.Â The purpose of the exhibit is to celebrate women, raise awareness of women’s cancers and raise funds to support the innovative research and life-saving treatment programs at City of Hope.
