Saturday and Sunday, 11am - 6pm
Awakenings is an arts nonprofit dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of survivor of sexual violence. We are excited to welcome ArtWalk goers to tour our current exhibit: Embodying Justice. This exhibit centers work by survivors of Japanese military sexual slavery, who were euphemistically called “comfort women,” before and during WWII. Through art, we seek to spark discussion about connections to contemporary sexual violence in relation to state violence. Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive art installation as well as to sit and have their photo taken with the Statue of Peace (aka Sonyeosang).
