"What Were You Wearing?" Display from RESTORE
"What Were You Wearing?" is a sexual assault survivor art installation. The installation challenges rape myths and provides an opportunity for participants to understand that an act of sexual assault never has anything to do with what someone was wearing... or not wearing.
The outfits shown in the display were inspired by submissions by local college students about what they were wearing when they were assaulted.
RESTORE is displaying "What Were You Wearing?" at the Brighton Campus April 22nd - April 24th near the Mercer Art Gallery. The display will be at the Downtown Campus in the 2nd floor lounge April 29th - May 1st.
Contact Shelby Gallaro at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
