Domestic violence, sexual assault victims speak through art

Posted:

Victims of domestic violence or sexual assault sometimes find it hard to talk about the pain.

But some in our area have another way to share their experiences.

The Healing Through Art exhibit is designed for women to do exactly that.

They use different kinds of mediums, from paintings to pottery to water coloring.

The Women's Community teams up with the Center for Visual Arts to allow victims to speak.. without using words.

Jane Graham Jennings/Women's Community Executive Director: "They're surprised by what it does for them and how it transforms them from feeling really bad to uplifting and it's wonderful what they create."

The Healing Through Art exhibit runs until April 24th at the Center for Visual Arts in Wausau.

April is Domestic Violence Awareness month.
