“Love Shouldn’t Hurt” is an installation modeled on a wedding salon and dedicated to raising community awareness through lifting the voices of domestic violence survivors. Fabric artist Patricia Montgomery will work closely with the director of client services at STAND! for Families Free of Violence (STAND!) to facilitate focus groups that explore clients’ experiences and celebrate their work to heal. The finished installation will feature floor-length mirrors marked with domestic violence statistics and mannequins wearing fashionable wedding garments that have been embroidered, painted, and quilted with stories from STAND!’s survivors. The garments also will be featured in a fashion show at STAND!’s annual community event.
