Spring 2021 - Week 5

Support Survivor & Denim Day Buttons

Today is DENIM DAY!

Celebrated every year on the last Wednesday of April, Denim Day started as a campaign against sexual assault apologists. In the summer of 1998 in Italy, an 18-year-old girl was raped by her 45-year-old driving instructor. One year later, the perpetrator was released after the court overturned his sentence. He appealed that the girl had had ‘consensual’ sex with him because she was wearing tight jeans that could have only been taken off with her help. The next day, Italian women showed up in jeans to their workplaces as a way to protest the absurdity of the overturned sentence.

Artist bio: “I was born in Puebla, Mexico and have lived in the Denver area for the past 34 years.  Color is prevalent in all of my art.  I draw inspiration for my work in different mediums from my surroundings and my positive outlook on life.  I try to convey these emotions to those who look at my art.  I'm a self-taught artist and I do this as a creative outlet.

Naci en Puebla, Mexico y he vivido en Denver por los ultimos 34 anos.  El color es predominante en todo mi arte.  Tomo mi inspiracion de lo que me rodea enfatizando mi actitud positiva de la vida.  Trato de comunicar estas emociones a aquellos que miran mi arte.  Soy auto-didacta y hago esto como un desahogo creativo
