The Heart of Breast Cast Art
The story of the The Keep A Breast Casts™ is the story of KAB itself. Over a decade ago, KAB’s founders, then involved in their own arts organization, rallied to support a friend with breast cancer. They developed an idea to express the female experience of breast cancer by reimagining the traditional canvas as a participatory sculpture. After some experimentation and partnerships with the right people, they developed and tested a technique for capturing the female bust in a plaster. The result was a white cast that was then customized by artists. The success of these breast casts as conversation starters, awareness builders and fundraising tools ultimately led the creation of the non-profit The Keep A Breast Foundation.

Mexican culture and art led me to the ultimate inspiration for supporting women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the most beautiful way I could think of. Her name was Frida.
