The Blue Bench Presents

The Third Annual Survivor Art Show

Thank you for visiting the virtual gallery and event page for The Blue Bench's third annual RISE Survivor Art Show

Please be advised that RISE contains work depicting sensitive themes of sexual violence which may be distressing or triggering to some attendees.

Since its inception in 2022, RISE has become more than an event; it is a cornerstone of our community's commitment to fostering awareness and support. Through vibrant artworks and powerful expressions, RISE creates a sacred platform for survivors to reclaim their narratives and shatter the pervasive silence surrounding sexual violence.

For those interested in purchasing artwork, please contact Carolyn Ferrick,
