While it might be hard to imagine, public service announcements don’t have to be lame. For proof, look no further than the Art Kills Kancer poster project. The series peddles important prevention and early detection information, but with an edge: One poster features a pair of neon lungs that are festooned with tumor-like black flowers (don’t smoke!), while another work featuring boob silhouettes in a variety of shapes and sizes makes it hard for you to forget your annual. It’s all part of a campaign against the “Hateful Eight,” cancers that can be prevented with lifestyle adjustments or early detection and treatment. At the opening party from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 9, Lori Barbero will DJ. Posters will be for sale throughout the weekend.
