We are kicking off October, Breast Cancer Awareness month, with this demonstration of solidarity inspired by Bob Carey’s Ballerina exhibition. Participants can show their support by wearing their tutus on TUTU Tuesday, Oct 2 and participating in the group photo. Tutus will be available for purchase at the event or through pre-orders. Professional photographers will be on-hand to take individual and group portraits for a $10 donation per photo that will benefit the American Cancer Society and Cancer Care.

INSPIRATION FOR TUTU TUESDAY
Ballerina exhibition by Bob Carey September 14 – December 2, 2012 Showing at Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum
Ballerina stems from Bob Carey’s body of work called The Tutu Project, which humorously depicts the tutu clad artist in playful predicaments and scenarios. The project began 10 years ago, when Carey and his wife moved from Arizona to New York. Six months later, Carey’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and the photographs have taken on a new identity and become a visual anthem for the fight against this devastating disease.
