The Clothesline Project
March 31 – April 10, 2015
Reception April 9, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Extended hours April 10, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
A group of women from Cape Cod, MA started the Clothesline Project in 1990. The intent of the program is to provide a vehicle for women who have been affected by sexual and relationship violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as a testimony to the problem of violence against women.
It is estimated that there are around 500 projects nationally and internationally. All of the shirts on display at NDSU were made by individuals from the NDSU community.
