SXSW / Keep-A-Breast

SXSW approaches! I've been several times, but this will be my first to experience it while living in Austin. I'm veryexcited to announce my involvement in my first SXSW Event!

Kimmy McAttee is the PR, Marketing Manager and Event Coordinator for Keep A Breast Foundation. The Keep A Breast Foundation™ is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Their mission: "to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support. Through art events, educational programs and fundraising efforts, they seek to increase breast cancer awareness among young people so they are better equipped to make choices and develop habits that will benefit their long-term health and well-being."

On Saturday March 21 I'm going to be painting a cast on site! This is going to be a rad experience and for a great cause. If you're around, come on over to Emo's anytime between 12 P.M. - 6 P.M.

You can see examples of other artist's casts here
