A colorful 2017 monthly wall calendar is available from the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline, featuring selected works from their popular Creative Cups event. Each page shows a Creative Cup—an ordinary bra that has been transformed into a work of art by people throughout the U.S.
In March, for example, gorgeous green, blue and purple feathers create “Proud as a Peacock,” by Gail Massaro of Bayville; golfers will enjoy May’s “Protect the Tee Tees,” created by Christina Capetola of Garden City, which is embellished with pink and white tees, turf and golf balls; and, marking Independence Day in July there is Cathy Hill of Douglaston’s red, white and blue “Miss Liberty.”
“It was difficult to select just these 12 out of the 136 that will be auctioned on March 16,” said Dale Flashner, the Adelphi graphic design professor who is the cofounder of Creative Cups. “Each time we do this, I continue to be amazed at the variety of what we receive and the skill with which they are made.”
The calendar sells for $20 and all profits support the work of the Adelphi breast cancer program, which provides information and emotional support to breast cancer patients and their families throughout New York.
