Things to Do

Breasts of Colorado breaks the mold for a fundraiser like no other

When it comes to artists decorating objects for charity we've probably seen it all by now -- giant cow statues, guitars and violins, skateboard decks, fiberglass cats and even those hideous masks that seemed to start it all. But we've never before seen the likes of Breasts of Colorado, at least not in Denver, and you've got to admire the spunk and savoir faire of the brave models who allowed their chests to be cast for the project, which will raise funds for Sense of Security, a nonprofit that offers financial help for patients undergoing breast cancer treatment.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
