Please check out this article on the public art installation instructor Shanna Glawson helped coordinate in partnership with the Terrie Hess Child Advocacy Center (CAC).

The art installation is located in front of the Rowan Museum in downtown Salisbutry and was created to help bring attention to the rise of child abuse across Rowan County:

An installation of 250 pairs of children’s shoes are currently being displayed on the lawn of the Rowan Museum in downtown Salisbury through Friday, April 21. Each pair of shoes represents a child abuse case that Terrie Hess CAC has identified, investigated, prosecuted, and treated during 2022.

“I wanted to help the Terrie Hess Child Advocacy Center because I firmly believe in their cause,” said Glawson. “As an artist, I enjoy creating healing art initiatives that work on a broader scope outside myself, by creating community-based art projects. By creating this public art installation, I hope to raise awareness to these issues and advocate for change and healing.”

We are so proud of you!
