Full Sail partners with Hard Rock for Breast Cancer Awareness
WINTER PARK, FL — Full Sail University ( partnered with Hard Rock International in support of Hard Rock's Pinktober campaign for breast cancer awareness. Nine female students from Full Sail's game art and computer animation degree programs created a breast cancer awareness-themed mixed media art piece that is on display at the Hard Rock Cafe at Universal CityWalk in Orlando, throughout the month of October. The art piece will be auctioned online for charity at a later date.

Hard Rock's Pinktober program encourages guests to support breast cancer awareness by attending live music performances and pink-themed events at Hard Rock locations across the globe. Through the university’s project-based arts initiative known as The Art of Full Sail, nine female students collaborated over two days using mixed media, including paint, acrylic markers and a stylized guitar pick mosaic to produce the art piece. The entire process was documented on video and provides insight into the concept and creation of the art piece, which was unveiled at Hard Rock's annual Pinktober event featuring rock icon Bret Michaels. Full Sail recording arts graduate Blake James composed and mixed the soundtrack for the video.
