Cory Favre: The White Knuckled Project Opening Reception

November 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The White Knuckled Project
By Cory Favre

“With this project, I want to spotlight the lengths women and those who experience harassment and assault go through to ensure their personal safety. It is something nearly all of us do on a regular basis. In some of the conversations around this project and with friends, it’s almost become a joke. But, inside of the laughter is a nervousness that we all connect to. This is our reality on these panels.” -Cory Favre
