This Is My Body Art Show

This Is My Body Art Show

We have had many art installations in our store, but none were as emotionally charged as this one.


Avalon Sutherland, founder of Derby City Consent, and models from across the Louisville area came together to share their stories of sexual assault survival.

Women, men, and children came together and created raw, thought-provoking black and white images that made everyone question how they could do more to stop this ever-increasing problem of sexual assault.

Because of the sensitivity and to protect the privacy of the survivors, we are only allowed to share this one picture. We encourage you to contact Derby City Consent on Facebook, they have magazines for sale, and all proceeds go to the Center for Women and Families to help women get back on their feet.

Challenging Rape Culture, Supporting Survivors

(We’d like to begin by including a Content Warning for mentions of sexual assault throughout this blog. Take care of yourselves and read with caution, friends.)

It's been a long, stressful, and emotion-filled week. The Kavanaugh hearings have, for many - especially survivors of sexual assault - been emotionally exhausting. The current news cycle is triggering for many survivors. Because of this, RAINN's hotline has been overflowing with calls to a point they can’t keep up, Twitter has been overflowing with both support and contempt for Dr. Ford, and most of our conversations here at BLōFISH have centered around the news cycle and how we can help.

Sarah wanted a career that allowed her to see the world but also let her be a part of something bigger than herself. This led her to the military. She chose this path with a goal to, “become something more.” Along with serving our country, Sarah explained that her reason behind joining the Maven program was “to inspire others to be themselves and not be afraid to show who they are.”
