Art exhibit in Pigtown portrays the stories of female sex workers and users of drugs


An art exhibit in Pigtown created portraits of sex workers and in an attempt to humanize them. The portraits are accompanied by material from the lives of the eight women who agreed to serve as models for the portraits. The exhibit is in conjunction with a program called SPARC, run by JHU’s Bloomberg School of Public Health that provides sex workers with a place to relax, showers, laundry facilities, computers and other support services.¬†Faculty Associate Susan Sherman is quoted.
