In this exhibit, you can read their testimonials and see the portraits taken by student photographers Brittany Peterson and Christina Serrano. The photographs and testimonials are on display in the art gallery of the Student Union, during the entire month of November, beginning November 8th.

This exhibit will also be a part of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro 2ndFriday Artwalk on Friday, November 12th. Join the photographers and Project Dinah for refreshments in the Student Union Gallery and view the works anytime between 6:00 – 9:00 pm.

Silent Witnesses

These Silent Witnesses are individuals who have survived relationship violence. Their silhouettes are cut from cardboard, their story is written on the silhouette, and the witnesses stand each day in the Student Union, drawing attention to their experience. You can read the stories and profiles of these survivors of relationship violence anytime during the week of November 8-12; the witnesses will be in a glass case on the main (2nd) floor of the Student Union. The exhibit is in collaboration with the Family Violence Prevention Center.
