The Anchorage Museum is using its outdoors facade to host an exhibit giving voice to survivors of sexual assault. Passersby can view the text and images, printed on large vinyl posters, even during the pandemic (the museum has reopened but with limited capacity inside).
“Change comes through awareness and understanding. Without the stories, there is silence.”
Over the past year, the reporting teams at the Anchorage Daily News and ProPublica have explored Alaska's high rate of sexual assault and have worked to bring attention to the survivors who have gone unheard. On Wednesday, we'll add another medium to the collection: an outdoor installation at the Anchorage Museum.
