Zonta Club partners with LCCC to present ‘What Were You Wearing?’ art exhibit

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Zonta Club of Cheyenne invites the public to view the “What Were You Wearing?” sexual assault survivor exhibit at Laramie County Community College from April 1 to April 8. There is no charge to view the exhibit, which is located in the College Community Center Building near the cafeteria.

The display of clothing worn by victims is intended to counter the myth that clothing is a reason sexual assault occurs. The display asks viewers to understand that sexual assault is never about the clothing and that victims are not to blame for the actions of their assailants. The stories used in the exhibit were provided by survivors of sexual assault and are used with their consent.

The exhibit is offered in cooperation with Laramie County Community College. It is available for viewing during the college’s normal operating hours. Viewers who are affected or whose memories are triggered by the exhibit are invited to call the Campus and Wellness Office or Hansen and Associates Counseling Services for assistance.

Zonta Club of Cheyenne offers “What Were You Wearing?” as part of its awareness campaign occurring during April, which has been designated as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In addition to the LCCC exhibit, entries associated with Zonta’s annual Art Contest will be on display in the lobby of the Cheyenne Civic Center during the majority of April.

This art is intended to raise awareness about the atrocities that arises due to Violence Against Women. It may be viewed during normal box office hours of the Civic Center. It may also be viewed during a planned reception to be held the evening of April 15, to which the public is invited.
