This exhibit remains admission free through the membership support of people like you.

Piedmont Arts celebrates National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with an exhibit by photographer Curtis Brown. Brown created Weight of the Ribbon, as an homage to his grandmother’s struggle with breast cancer.

His photographs reflect the emotional journeys of breast cancer victims in their battles against the disease; from moments of strength and triumph to moments of defense and collapse. Dancers from the Carolina Ballet used their artistic talents to translate the photographer’s concept into visual form through distinct expression and movement.

Along with Weight of the Ribbon, one of Brown’s most passionate and innovative series, The Portrait from the Vote Against Project for equality in North Carolina, will also be on display.
