(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A new art exhibit at Missouri Western State University is shining a spotlight on sexual assault.


The "What Were You Wearing" Survivor Art installation is on display through Friday in the Blum Student Union.

The exhibit uses the question "what were you wearing" and clothes to share the stories of sexual assault survivors.

What were you wearing is a common question victims of sexual assault hear when telling their story.

"The exhibit accompanies the myth of the clothes that somebody is wearing or desirability are a reason for them to be a victim. The idea that they were asking for it or they deserved it based on what they were wearing," said Adam McGowan, MWSU Division of Student Affairs.

The exhibit was first created at the University of Arkansas in 2014.

Our weather pattern will become more quiet, but almost Florida-like with very warm & humid air moving in as we head into the second half of the work week and into the weekend.
