Bulgari partners with The Brain Project
On May 17th, Bulgari partnered with The Brain Project to unveil a sculpture by Montreal-based luxury ceramics artist, Pascale Girardin, in support of brain health. The sculpture is the first of many that will be scattered across the city, and auctioned off at the end of summer to benefit The Brain Project.
The sculpture, named Illusion, drew inspiration from Bulgari’s Diva’s Dream Collection and Italian gardens, and can be found at the Bulgari Toronto boutique in Yorkdale Mall. The cause strikes a personal cord with artist Pascale, as she lost her father to ALS and is now doing her part to raise awareness about brain health.
