Join us for the opening reception of this exhibition of garnments and interactive elements related to clothing worn by sexual assault survivors.

Located in Cook Library, 3rd Floor Lobby

This program is part of Towson University’s presentation of the “What Were You Wearing?” Survivor Art Installation, which originated at the University of Arkansas in 2013 inspired by inspired by Dr. Mary Simmerling’s poem, What I Was Wearing. This exhibit combines contemporary survivor stories with historic survivor stories researched from the Baltimore Sun, dating back as far as 1852. The TU Theatre Arts Department’s historic clothing collection adds a historical component to the exhibit to further emphasize how deeply these attitudes are woven into the fabric of our history and culture.
