    The Silent Witness and Baring Our Souls Opening Reception

    GSU Art Gallery
    Time:4:00 PM4:00 PM

    Please join us as we spread awareness during this week-long display showcasing two exhibits: The Silent Witness and Baring Our Souls to highlight October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. 

    Baring Our Souls is a display of shoes decorated by women living in shelters and tells their stories of abuse. The shoes are symbolic of women walking and having a journey from hope to healing and from tragedy to triumph. 

    The Silent Witness National Initiative is a display of life-sized outlines of victims of domestic abuse. Each figure represents a real person and their story. 

    There will be an open mic for survivors to share their stories and performance art. 

    Community partners will also be in attendance during the Open Reception to share their services.
