Sexual Assault Awareness Month is coming up! The Ford Gallery is hosting PSA, a community exhibition, curated by Lindsey Oldani, with proceeds going to SARC.
Join us on March 25, 2017 from 6 pm to 10 pm for our opening reception, live music (TBA/TBD), silent auction, and spoken word performance.
PSA is a Public Service Announcement that Provides Support through Art. In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness month and in response to recent federal action to defund the Violence Against Women Act, this group exhibition is our way of acknowledging this major social issue. PSA provides a showcase for local artists who believe in the importance of a community that actively addresses sexual violence, while also raising money for a local organization that serves survivors daily.
The event will include a community showcase and art exhibition by local women, spoken word performances from our rich community of oral artists, and the 10×10 donation project. Our #10x10Project supports the Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC Oregon), a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote social justice by eliminating sexual violence in our community through education, support, and advocacy. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each 10″ by 10″ piece will go directly to SARC.
