Moxie Wide Big Eyes

The definition of moxie is “force of character and determination”, and at 97 years young, Iris Apfel, portrayed in this sculpture, has plenty of moxie. “When you’ve got moxie, you need the clothes to match.”* She is an inspiration to all and sets an entire new bar of what our 90s can look like. Many of us won’t see our 90s and many won’t have the brain health to remember. This brain is intended to inspire everyone that brain health is so important: we must get involved and help find a cure.
