Finding Our Voices Shares Survivor Quilt

The FOV profile picture is of the Survivor Handprint Quilt. This quilt is a collection of more than 250 handprint squares created by Sexual Assault Survivors at Healing Images Artfests held in Colorado Springs from 1994-1996. The quilt was lost for years, and rediscovered in the fall of 2008. It is pictured here as it was displayed at the FOV Art Show in April 2009.

On Saturday, March 26, 2011, at the Business of Art Center, you are invited to create a handprint square for the survivor quilt. Finding Our Voices will have fabric available for you to choose your personal expression.
