Clothing and stories from the "What Were You Wearing?" exhibit hang upon walls of an art gallery. The goal of the installation is to bring awareness to the myth that clothing can cause sexual or violent assaults, as well as bring validation to survivors of assaults. The exhibit comes to the Penn State New Kensington Art Gallery in Oct. 2018.
“What Were You Wearing?” aims to dispel the myth that sexual assault is the fault of the victim due to what he or she may have been wearing. The art installation, which has appeared throughout the U.S., will be featured in the Penn State New Kensington Art Gallery throughout October, which is also National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
