In these quarantine days, the Pink Cadillac has decided to launch a competition that will keep us busy creatively and, at the same time, for a good cause. In fact, if this period of necessary isolation is hard for all of us, we must not forget those who experience this condition in an even more difficult and dramatic way: children and adolescents hospitalized with serious pathologies – oppressed by feelings of loneliness and bewilderment in their already dramatic daily lives – find themselves supporting a condition further aggravated by the restrictions of social distancing which also deprives them of their families and the warmth of a hug. That’s why Pink Cadillac has decided to allocate the proceeds from the participation fees directly to the voluntary organization OSCAR’S ANGELS Italy – which has been operating in our country since 2018 with two projects in particular in the “Bambino Gesù” pediatric hospitals in Rome and “San Gerardo” in Monza. OSCAR’S ANGELS Italia’s specialized volunteers give human and economic support, during hospitalization, to families with children or teenagers suffering from brain and spine tumors, degenerative neurological diseases or in palliative care.
Those who can draw or paint, or who cannot do it but only want to have fun with us and together with Bruce, can participate in the competition by dedicating some of their free time and try their hand at pencils or brushes, chalks or ink in a work that has as subject Bruce Springsteen.
THE WINNERS WILL BE AWARDED WITH THE GREAT BOOK BY Lawrence Kirsch “For You: Original Stories and Photographs by Bruce Springsteen’s Legendary Fans” ED. LIMITED+ THE PINK CADILLAC BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN FAN CLUB 2020 CARD + ALL PINK CADILLAC BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN FAN CLUB GADGETS (T-SHIRT, BRACELET, BAG, BANDANA AND TAG)
At the moment we cannot foresee a real exhibition of the works that will be sent to us, but all the works will be published in a virtual gallery on the site, waiting to reopen the doors of the PIT and really set up the halls for our activities. When this bad period is over, the winning works will be welcomed in the collection and permanently exhibited at the PIT, the first space in Europe dedicated to Bruce Springsteen.
