Breast in Show

Whether they are confidently elevating a modest A-cup to Parton-sized portions or carefully flattening and tucking away à la Hillary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry, a decent bra can be a true work of art. So why is it that these specimens of artistry get relegated to Goodwill’s 99-cent bin the minute a stray wire busts loose from the stitching? Thursday, the beloved over-the-shoulder boulder holder is finally getting the respect it’s due when “ArtyBras” returns to Lighthouse Art Center (373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta) for an art show. Decorative bras created by local artists will be on display starting today and running through February 10. Using themes of frosted cupcakes, stuffed animals, flowers, and the like, artists have created these pieces of wearable art in honor of breast cancer survivors Carolyn Austin and Betty Laur. The exhibit costs $5. Call 561-746-3101, or visit
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 6. Continues through Feb. 10, 2011
