REDRESSED is a transformational art project convening local artists to create original work featuring deconstructed wedding gowns, jewelry, photographs, and other meaningful items donated by survivors of intimate partner violence and their allies. The artists are converting the dress fabric and other objects into diverse artistic pieces exploring themes of transformation, community, and hope.
On June 8, 2017, the artists will showcase their work at Chase Court, a stunning Baltimore wedding and event venue, for an evening of art, music, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres.
Proceeds from ticket and art sales will benefit House of Ruth Maryland, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending intimate partner violence and helping survivors rebuild their lives safely and free of fear. Throughout the event, guests will contribute their own messages of hope and support to a collaborative tapestry piece that will be donated to House of Ruth at the end of the night.
REDRESSED is presented by No Discipline Arts Collective, Chase Court, and House of Ruth Maryland.
Co-founded by Brigitte Winter and Dustin Bottenberger, No Discipline Arts Collective is an artist-led initiative committed to producing cross-disciplinary work that breaks down traditional boundaries between isolated artists and disciplines. No Discipline regularly hosts art-a-thons, artist socials, museum crawls, figure drawing classes, and pop-up shows benefiting local charities. Since August 2014, No Discipline has presented seven pop-up art events featuring 60 artists and writers and benefiting causes including the ALS Foundation, the Kristin Rita Strouse Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Young Playwrights’ Theater, Shirley's Boxer Rescue, and Columbia Writers.

Their vision is that one day, every woman in Maryland will be safe in her own home. More info at hruth.org.
