Denim Day Art Exhibit: SafeHouse Center.

  community member   < less Denim Day USA

Local organizations will decorate pairs of denim jeans to recognize Denim Day, which protests common and damaging myths about sexual assault. The denim art will be displayed at SafeHouse Center with light refreshments and a speaker at 6pm to talk about the history behind the meaning of Denim Day. Denim Day was inspired in 1998 after an Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore jeans, reasoning she must have helped her attacker remove them. People all over the world were outraged, and wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.

Burroughs' Tracing Unseen Languages explores language barriers of various sorts, and her untitled solo explores the kinesthesia of language through a sound score that weaves from English to Italian.

Chapman's solo, Satsuma, explores the way ancestral roots manifest themselves, and Segue is a group work exploring the way partnerships form and develop from random encounters.

Turner's You Want It? is a fiery solo that transforms the set for a TV commercial into a satire of the outrageous, and his Lucid Dreaming is a group work exploring the sensations of consciousness within a dream.
