Atlanta’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Global Health Odyssey Museum presents “Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women, and Art”, June 6 – September 9, 2011.
Off the Beaten Path presents the work of 28 contemporary artists from 24 countries whose work addresses the issues of violence against women and girls around the world and their basic human rights to a safe and secure life.
Violence and injury are one of the urban health challenges studied by GSU’s Partnership for Urban Health Research. Interpersonal and domestic violence, how substance use contributes to violent behaviors, and evaluation of the justice system are some of the issues being examined.
