Bettina Hubby, an artist who underwent a double mastectomy over 2 months ago for her diagnosis with Breast Cancer, decided to turn her medical challenge into a project that would help her and others find humor in a time of gravity; she created an event on Facebook and made an open call for boobs of any sort: image, text, or video. This simple invitation received hundreds of posts ranging from poignant to beautiful with a smattering of the adolescent; this inspired Bettina to expand the results from her gesture into an exhibition. On view through August 16th.
