Last year, over 1,600 children and adults in Pinellas County sought help at Suncoast Center, Inc. to begin the journey from being a victim of sexual violence to becoming a survivor. Suncoast Center presents ART HEALS, a powerful exhibit featuring artwork created by survivors of sexual violence. The event takes place during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, on ArtWalk Night, and in partnership with several of St. Pete’s artists and arts organizations. Local artists have worked with survivors on several pieces. The artwork provides an intimate window into the pain and healing experience of these survivors’ and their inspirational personal journeys of recovery. The community is invited to experience this FREE exhibit and reception honoring the artists and the cause.
