NCCC to host Clothesline Project exhibit
The exhibit will be on display in the Dolce-Valvo Art Center on the Sanborn Campus.
The Clothesline Project features t-shirts, which have been decorated by women and men who have been affected by sexual violence as a victim, survivor, friend or family member.
Each shirt tells the survivor’s story in a unique way, using words and/or artwork to decorate the shirt.
The t-shirts are color-coded to show the form of abuse the victim experienced.
White represents those who died because of violence; beige represents those who were battered or assaulted; red, pink and orange are for survivors of rape and sexual abuse; blue and green represent survivors of incest and sexual abuse; purple or lavender are for those attacked because of their sexual orientation and black is for victims attacked for political reasons.
The Clothesline Project is a unique way to show the staggering, mind-numbing statistics of sexual assault and turn them into a provocative, in-your face educational and healing tool.
Opening Ceremonies are scheduled for noon Monday in the Dolce-Valvo Art Center — D168 — with a reception to follow.
The exhibit is open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday and noon to 2 p.m. Thursday.
