ArtsCorpsDetroit Student Supports Race for the Cure
On Saturday, May 26, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure participants and supporters noticed a chain of pink paper doll-like figures along the race's Woodward Ave. route. The 4-foot-tall cardboard cutouts are the work of Wayne State University art therapy student Stephanie Rozner.
Since March, Rozner and a team of volunteers have been painting, cutting and assembling sheets of cardboard, as well as writing inspirational messages that will adorn each of the 125 figures. Stephanie was completing a service-learning course requirement, assigned by instructor Dr. Elizabeth Barton.
"The pink chains of people essentially become metaphors for unity, community, support, remembrance, hope, survival, interpersonal connection; representing how ultimately this is about human life and how breast cancer impacts women, men, families, friends, relationships and communities," Rozner noted in a blog about the project.
Congratulations to Stephanie for a job well done!
