A WALK IN THEIR SHOES” ART EXHIBIT AT CITY HALL TO DISPLAY PAINTED SHOES DEPICTING STORIES OF TEEN DATING VIOLENCE

Community invited to free City Hall art exhibit on Friday, February 16

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Have you talked to your teen about dating violence? The City of Santa Clarita, in partnership with the Child and Family Center’s Domestic Violence Program, presents a special one day showing of “A Walk in Their Shoes,” a traveling art exhibit to build awareness around teen dating violence. The exhibit will be on display on Friday, February 16, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the First Floor Gallery in City Hall. City Hall is located at 23920 Valencia Boulevard.

Four pairs of shoes have been painted to depict the stories of local teens who have experienced dating violence. “These shoes will be displayed on crates closer to the ground to give the effect that the viewer is ‘standing in the survivor’s shoes’ as they read about their story,” says Leah Parker from the Child and Family Center. A teen dating violence survivor and domestic violence advocate will be present to answer any questions visitors may have about teen dating violence and available local resources.

The “A Walk in Their Shoes” traveling display has already made visits to local high schools and College of the Canyons to help raise awareness about teen dating violence. According to the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, every year approximately 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner, and three out of four parents have never talked to their children about domestic violence.
