"In addition to the Clothesline Project, the exhibit features artifacts from Tompkins County since the 1970s that document the history of victim and survivor support and prevention efforts in the area. What is now known as The Advocacy Center began as the Task Force for Battered Women in 1977 to support survivors of domestic abuse."
Unfolding was created through collaboration with the Advocacy Center of Tompkins County and The History Center in Tompkins County. The exhibit display was hosted by the Community Arts Partnership in the ArtSpace/Gallery.
