What Were You Wearing?

Published: April 7, 2021

CurlyRed is deeply honored to have created the branding used in this important project: What Were You Wearing? A Project Supporting National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The Allegany and Garrett County Arts Councils, along with partners Allegany College of MarylandDove CenterFamily Crisis Resource Center, and Frostburg State University are proud to be part the "What Were You Wearing?" exhibition, an important project that supports National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. You can view the digital exhibition here, now through April 24th.

The digital exhibition features images of outfits based on student-survivor descriptions of the clothes they were wearing during their sexual assault, along with sound files containing the stories of each survivor.

A note to viewers: This digital exhibition features real stories of survivors of sexual assault and may be sensitive to some viewers. A digital format was chosen to offer a quiet, private way to view the work without an audience, and to allow viewers the opportunity to respond in whatever way feels most appropriate. This exhibition is intended to stimulate and provoke honest discussion about sexual assault, address our attitudes towards those who have experienced it, and learn how we can better support one another. 

Resources are available locally and at the federal level for survivors, their families, and for more information about prevention.
