The Art Bra Models
All Art Bra Austin Models are breast cancer survivors and clients of BCRC. This feisty group of women reflects the diversity of the thousands of women we serve annually. For most, Art Bra Austin is a transformative experience. This unique event is a tribute to their courage, strength, and tenacity.
The Art Bra Collection
Art Bra Austin is a juried art/design competition. Every year, Austin’s talented community of artists, designers, and jewelers submit their original works of wearable art to be showcased by a dynamic group of Art Bra Austin Models. Approximately 60 to 70 pieces are selected from over 100 submissions to be offered for auction the night of the event. The top submissions are auctioned live during the runway show with winning bids as high as $8,500 for these one-of-a-kind creations.
Breast Cancer Resource Center (BCRC)
Over the years, treatment for breast cancer has gotten more sophisticated. It’s also gotten much more complex. BCRC is here to assist Central Texans affected by breast cancer in overcoming obstacles related to accessing screening and treatment services, adhering to treatment plans, and in confronting the issues that erode quality of life.
Whatever the circumstances, BCRC provides all services and programs – free of charge – to anyone affected by breast cancer regardless of income, ethnicity, education, sexual orientation, or social support. With every act and for every client, BCRC strives to embody understanding, preserve dignity, and always see the woman as well as the disease. We believe no one should face breast cancer alone.
