There's one that would have been a real shame to miss...Monica Magness...it was there that I learned about Monica's "the pink artist" community art doll project for charity. She created a 37 inch doll and is collecting 2" x 2" squares from artists, using their chosen medium, that she will hand sew to a piece of fabric and then add to the doll as the main focal point. The doll was recently named "Love Squared" and is eventually to be auctioned off with all proceeds to benefit "Susan G. Komen for the Cure" for the fight against breast cancer.
As of February 8th, there were 122 creative souls signed up to participate. As one of those 122, there is much that I love about this opportunity: 1. You just gotta love finding a place where personal passion can be a part of a bigger cause, a place to help make a difference...2. the "Susan G. Komen for the Cure" and their dedication to many issues surrounding breast cancer through research, education, empowerment and much more...and 3. Being part of an art collaboration will surely be fun...not only the anticipation of seeing the completed art doll, but also seeing the incredible art squares as they come in. There are several squares already posted on Monica's blog and it's an amazing sight! You can follow the progress of "Love Squared" on her blog, too.
So, here's my part...the four squares I'll be sending off to Monica tomorrow:
What a fun project--I'm thrilled to have found it! What else do you suppose is out there awaiting discovery?
