One in Eight: A Breast Cancer Awareness Art Exhibit
Annapolis Town Center has once again partnered with AND Creative to transform a vacant retail space into a weekend pop up art installation. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will be creating a visual journey to heal, educate and celebrate our community. We will have a gallery exhibition by regional artists, information sessions, events and a special line of merchandise. 20% of all sales of art and merch will go to two local non profits providing services to those battling breast cancer, Annapolis Dragon Boat Club and Survivors offering Support through Luminis Heath. Please stop to see the exhibit and join us for one of the many events happening in the space during the weekend! The Exhibit is located in suite 120, near Muse Paintbar.

HOW CAN YOU BE INVOLVED:
1) Tell us your story: Whether you are a survivor, a caretaker, a family member, or a friend…share a piece of advice with others about your experience with breast cancer or helping someone else through their experience, your journey, things you wish you would have known, etc.
2) Sit for a portrait: Are you a survivor or currently going through treatment? Let us take a beautiful black and white portrait of you that will hang as part of the exhibit!
3) Tell your friends and share this post! Let’s all come together to educate our community and celebrate those who have kicked cancer to the curb!
