‘Bras for a Cause’ celebrates unique art, cancer awareness


When Las Cruces artists start gathering their paint and brushes, needle and thread, baubles and beads, glue guns and even their 3D-printer supplies, it must mean some kind of magic is going to happen. Imagination is going to take center stage for Bras for a Cause, a vibrant initiative aimed at raising awareness for breast cancer and supporting Cancer Warriors in our community.

Bras for a Cause is a one-of-a-kind extravaganza where local artists showcase their talent by transforming bras into stunning works of art. This in-person event will be held 6-10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, at New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, 4100 Dripping Springs Road.

Get ready to be amazed by the incredible designs and bid on your favorite masterpiece.
