About this project

Please fund the completion of my art project, that is themed on artistic expressions of ending Rape Culture especially within the  Appalachian State University (ASU) community.

I have already completed *half* of this project, however I need your help to finish. Your donations will fund at least two more pieces of artwork within this series. The next project will be another tunnel piece that will focus on rape myths, specifically dealing with the issues of victim-blaming. I will use a figure life-drawing as my main image for that piece.

The two art pieces that have already been completed can be found at:
* http://www.collegeartistcorner.com/?p=93
* http://www.collegeartistcorner.com/?p=109


The themes on Rape Culture this art focuses around are the three steps to end rape culture:
* Break the Silence
* Name the Accountable
* Build our Support


The donation goal covers the following:
* Tools and Materials (specifically A LOT of PAINT!)
* Travel
* Documentation
* Video Production and Editing
* Publishing

A brief background on the issue my art is focusing on can be read at:

I have also been interviewed about this ongoing art series by "The Art of Dismantling" collective:
