“Refuge House Mural” AMWA Officers at FSU
Institution: Florida State University College Of Medicine
Medium: Acrylic Paint
Dimensions: 80 x 60 inches
Artist Statement: AMWA officers at FSU College of Medicine painted a mural at Refuge House Free Clinic in March 2012. Refuge House offers safe haven to victims of domestic and sexual violence. The clinic provides a confidential place for patients to receive medical care without leaving the safety of the shelter. These women and children have survived domestic violence and are either currently living in emergency shelter, transitional housing or involved in outreach though Refuge House. The mural represents a bright beacon of hope and encouragement for those who seek medical services during their stay in shelter.
