Visual Artist Valentina Bilbao participated in the exquisite 8th annual show organized in support of MAI, Mammography Art Initiative, Poderosa, celebrated October 19th, 2019 at Conde Contemporary Fine Art Gallery in Coral Gables, FL. Valentina Bilbao believes in the power and importance of supporting initiatives that benefit and sublimate humanity, as well as to have a presence on the diverse efforts involved for it. The show was curated by Francine Birbragher-Rozencwaig. The Mammography Art Initiative is an organization founded by FIU medical students of the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at Florida International University, which host an annual art show and silent auction of donated artwork. The proceeds of this event support the services of the Linda Fenner 3D Mobile Mammography Center, which provides mammograms and breast health education to underserved women of Miami Dade County in order to reduce the disparities found in breast cancer prevention, screening and access to care. The theme selected for this year event/exhibition show “Poderosa = Powerful Woman” and the mission is to empower strong local women by giving them equal access to healthcare and the opportunity for early detection and prevention of breast cancer.
