Depicting countless faces of domestic violence victims
Artist Valarie Martinez portrays the countless faces of domestic violence. The mural created by the artist and lecturer stands as a symbol of the disturbing problem plaguing approximately six million Americans annually. As a victim of violence, Martinez shares her experience with thousands of women across the country to encourage and give hope to people suffering from domestic abuse. Last week, Martinez discussed her story and artwork with a group of Carbon County residents as part of a local domestic violence conference.
