The Living Portrait (2007 Grantee)
It announces the artist reception, the 11 day installation and the panel discussion. Considering that a recent newspaper article stated that 50% of undergraduate women say they have experienced emotional, physical or sexual violence stemming from personal relationships before or during college using the Living Portrait to educate, raise awareness and to offer opportunities for assistance is extremely valuable.
A major goal of the Living Portrait is also to inspire visitors to become involved in the fight against domestic violence. I think this installation at NYU at 5 venues is a great step toward that end.
Thanks for the inspiration and help by the Asian Women Giving Circle.
