One of my favorite local events is the Breast Cancer Brick Auction which just took place this past weekend. The fundraiser features brick-art which is auctioned to benefit breast cancer research, advocacy and patient support in Greater Cincinnati.
‘Bricks Along the Journey’ was begun by Ellen Bernstein Ganson, who, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, channeled her frustration into creating an event that would benefit breast cancer patients and breast cancer research. Local artists were excited to contribute to the cause and today there are over 200 artists who contribute their time and talent to transform crumbled and castaway bricks into beautiful works of art.
Here is the brick that I auctioned on and won called “Waiting”.
Below are some additional pieces. To learn more or see past collections go to www.breastcancerbricks.org.
