Academic Discrimination Lives On
would California artist Nicolino plan to string 20,000
bras across the Grand Canyon? Art needs no reason. What
would he do after the National Park Service said no way?
He hadn't a clue. So he offered to give the bras away:
"Nicolino has moved on," he declared with third-person
resolve. Artist Emily Duffy wanted the hand-me-downs.
She had a vision: she'd hook them together and wrap them
around and around, like a ball of yarn. Nicolino loved
the idea maybe a little too much. He rescinded
the offer to give away the bras and decided to just build
a ball himself (so much for moving on). Hands off, said
Duffy, that's my idea. Then the race began. Nicolino set
to work with his 20,000 bras, while Duffy e-mailed 150
of her friends and family asking for bra reinforcements.
That was in January. Within weeks, word spread and 7,000
bras arrived chez Duffy from around the world. By May,
her Bra Ball was just over three feet high and
copyrighted. Her cups runneth over. Nicolino, meanwhile,
has a Big Giant Bra Ball. And both artists are
still at it. Duffy is recruiting more bras to bring her
ball to five feet four inches, the height of the average
woman in the U.S., so send your "support" to P.O. Box
1555, El Cerrito, CA 94530.
