PROJECT

           50 + AND FABULOUS      ART EXHIBITION

OCT 15-18 2020 

INTRODUCTION TO THE PROJECT; 

THIS PROJECT WAS MADE IN MIND WITH THE CELEBRATION OF MY 50TH BIRTHDAY. TURNING 50 IS WHAT YOU CALL THE MILESTONE. IM BLESSED TO HAVE MADE IT THIS FAR. IT IS ALSO A CELEBRATION OF THE EVOLUTIONARY WOMAN. WHERE AT THIS POINT IN LIFE YOU THINK ABOUT THE NEXT FIFTY YEARS WHAT AND HOW YOU WANT TO FULFILL.  IT WAS ALSO MADE IN TRIBUTE TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS. WITH THE ORGANIZATION - NYSADV NATIONAL COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. OCTOBER MONTH IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH.

 

I WAS A VICTIM TOO!

 

WE WANTED TO GIVE BACK TO THIS ORGANIZATION  FOR ALL THEY HAVE DONE AND ARE DOING FOR WOMEN AND MEN. THESE VICTIMS NEED AN OUTLET, A HAND AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO LEAVE AN UNHEALTHY LIFE. SINCE THE PANDEMIC, THERE HAS BEEN A RISE IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE REPORTED. ON THE AVERAGE REPORTED THERE ARE MORE THEN 1 IN 3 WOMEN AND 1 IN 4 MEN IN THE USA WILL EXPERIENCE RAPE, VIOLENCE, AND OR STALKING BY AN INTIMATE PARTNER. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS HAVE EXPERIENCED PHYSICAL VIOLENCE FROM A PARTNER LAST YEAR ALONE. CASES HAVE BEEN ON THE RISE SINCE WEVE BEEN HOME FROM THIS PANDEMIC. WE MUST BRING AWARENESS OF THIS EPIDEMIC AND MAKE SAFETY MORE ACCESSIBLE TO THESE VICTIMS.
