2014-10-15 North Central to Present The Scarlet Cord NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE
1515 Howard Street
Petoskey, MI 49770

NEWS RELEASE – October 16, 2014

NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE TO PRESENT
THE SCARLET CORD, ARTPRIZE 2014 HONOREE

North Central Michigan College is proud to be the host of the powerful exhibit, The Scarlet Cord, by artist Pamela Alderman, to our Petoskey campus October 27-29, 2014. The Scarlet Cord: Healing for Sex Trafficked Children reveals the deception that enslaves innocent children. As visitors step inside a storage container filled with 30 doors, they enter a secret world. This dark world crosses religious and socio-economic borders to sell children for sex. The twisting scarlet cord depicts the trauma bond that connects the children to their traffickers. The weathered doors represent these abused children whose youthful minds have become knotted. There are six mixed-media works of art – Tethered, Raped, Branded, Wounded, Stripped and Forced.

Alderman’s art—dedicated to these suffering children tethered within the sex industry—calls for compassionate action.

This exhibit was voted top 25 in the ARTPRIZE 2014 series. It was on display at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum from September 24 through October 12. It will open in Petoskey at North Central Michigan College in the parking lot between the library and the admin classroom building on Monday, October 27.

Hours are Monday, October 27, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday, October 28, 9 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, October 29 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Docents will be available for tours during this time.

Many thanks to an anonymous donor from Bay View for underwriting the exhibit, and Crooked Tree Arts Center, the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan and the Zonta Club of Petoskey for their support. For more information, visit http://pamelaalderman.com/artprize/the-scarlet-cord/.
