This stunning and stirring volume is the outgrowth of an exhibit at the San Francisco Main Library Gallery sponsored by the Breast Cancer Fund, the American Cancer Society (San Francisco Bay Area), and the San Francisco chapter of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The artwork and writings were culled from breast cancer survivors, "women who, inspired to create in the face of pain and adversity, present the art and outrage of breast cancer." The volume includes abstract works, collages, photographs, sculpture, and mixed-media pieces along with poetry, journal entries, and essays that illustrate the strength, fear, passion, anger, and renewal that comes with the breast cancer experience. These women have faced death and now embrace life. "What are your breasts filled with now, Mommy?" asked Heather Ann Gilchrists' eight-year-old daughter. "Saline, like salt water." "Oh, you mean like tears." "Yes, darling, my breasts are filled with tears." Such exceptional creativity cannot restore a lost breast; it will tug at your heart. Highly recommended for all fine-art and health collections.
The voices contained within Art.Rage.Us. are brave and powerful and beautiful. Most importantly these creative renderings through story and imagery set a collective healing in motion that transcends personal pain. Terry Tempest Williams
