Personal Accounts

“What Were You Wearing?” Plain Dressing People’s Edition

Hope Anne Dueck, Mary Byler, and Ruth Ann Brubaker have been working to create a unique and impactful art display. It will be composed of actual items and near-to-real-life replications of clothing worn by “plain” background survivors at the time of their assault/abuse.
