Breast cancer art exhibit pieces for sale
    An interactive art installment that was put up in Sun Valley Meadows called “1 in 8,” which was designed by local artist Danica Mattias to honor those with breast cancer is portioned off for sale to benefit Expedition Inspiration.
    The installation included eight giant woven balls made of reed that were threaded with 140 pink tribute flags featuring the names of breast cancer survivors, those lost to the disease and other loved ones. One of the eight structures was rounder and pinker than the rest to represent the one in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
    The completed installation remained in the meadows for a full week.
    “The process of creating ‘1 in 8’ has left me with such a deeper appreciation for the healing nature of art,” Mattias said. “I see more than just eight woven structures when I look at that field now. I see how disease hits home and changes lives so frequently. I am reminded that every day is a gift.”
    The balls are available for sale at $500 each. Contact the Expedition Inspiration office at 726-6456 for more
