Here’s how it works: Famous skaters who are artists will make art (not love) on plaster casts of famous female skaters. Then you buy these artworks in an auction and the money goes to the Keep A Breast Foundation to raise money and awareness of breast cancer. Regardless of your sexual orientation, you are probably thinking “Sure, I like breasts and I’d like to do my part, but what am I going to do with a life size bust cast?” And somewhere the last work-safe content filter just added Skate and Annoy to their blacklist.
Ok, there are surfers and non extreme sports celebrities involved. From October 17-26th, people from around the world can bid on casts of Pink, Elissa Steamer, Rosa Gonzalez, Amy Gunther and more, decorated by leading athletes and artists such as Mark Gonzales, Robert Williams, Ed Templeton and Wes Humpston. – and everyone is lifting that from a press release without quoting it.
The organization has a good sense of humor as evidenced by the “boobies” shirts and playful nature of the event. There have been some who don’t approve because they think it makes light of a serious disease. Surprisingly there are some pretty darn cool bust casts. I recommend checking out the cast galleries from previous shows. Here’s a few highlights.
