Abstract

An exhibit of t-shirts decorated by victims of violence on display at the Chetco Community Public Library was moved from a large meeting room to a smaller one to limit access to children. The display was sponsored by the group Curry County Citizens for Human Rights; the purpose of the exhibit was to draw attention to the widespread problem of abuse. It elicited emotional reactions from viewers.
