Green Dot Art Display

Creating a Green Dot Campus

January 15 – February 15
Sarratt Art Gallery

Every person has the opportunity to interrupt a negative action of power-based personal violence (intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and stalking violence) by being an active, engaged member of our campus.  Each of us can do something to help someone else – a green dot.  Likewise, many of us are connected to an individual action or moment of violence – a red dot.

Sponsored by the Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center and in collaboration with the Green Dot at Vanderbilt Committee, “Creating a Green Dot Campus” is a collection of individual artistic expressions from Vanderbilt students, faculty, and staff who have experienced green or red dots.  Each dot is a ten-inch wooden circle painted to represent the experience of creating change on campus or of surviving an act of power-based personal violence.  The display is arranged to express the power of adding “green dot moments” to our campus and to capture the hope of reducing acts of violence in our community by replacing red dots with green ones.

Join in the campus-wide conversation about reducing power-based personal violence across campus!  This year-long series of events provides a variety of information on the issue and suggests solutions for the future.  The final event of the year is “Creating a Green Dot Campus.”  This artistic installation expresses the power of adding “green dot moments” to our campus and to capture the hope of reducing acts of violence in our community by replacing red dots with green ones.  To celebrate the art display, we are hosting a reception in Sarratt Gallery.  Don’t miss the art display that is a top pick in the Nashville Scene!
