Empty Chairs

October 29, 2018 through December 14, 2018

Miller Nichols Library | 1st Floor


Every day people miss work and class due to domestic violence.

Six transformed chairs on display in the Miller Nichols LibraryAs a part of the Empty Chairs Campaign, the UMKC Violence Prevention & Response Program collaborated with the Department of Art and Art History to raise awareness about domestic violence and how it affects members of our community.

Students from the Art Department's 3D Design class transformed chairs into works of art that speak to the theme of domestic violence, and displayed them across campus throughout the month of October.

Now, these chairs are on display together at the library. Come see these powerful works of art and learn what you can do to reduce the impact of domestic violence.
