RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - If you take a stroll through Art Alley, you might see a new masterpiece to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The mural “Faith, Love, Hope” was created by Madison Radke.

Rake says it took about a month to come up with the idea and says she was thinking about butterflies and how they symbolize life changes, and she felt that’s what people go through when battling breast cancer.

On the mural, it also says the words faith, hope and love, as that’s something Radke believes people need as they continue their battle.

Now, this is the third year Monument Health has sponsored a local artist’s mural in Art Alley to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Radke says she this was her third time competing, and this year was the charm.

“It’s very rewarding, with the Alex Johnson being right here, I met people from a bunch of different states. And this isn’t something that they have, and so they’ve asked me questions and stuff. Like the meaning behind it and why I’m doing it. And it’s just very rewarding to know that I’m spreading awareness about breast cancer,” says Radke.

Radke says she hopes her art helps spread a message of awareness and optimism.
