Empty Chairs

Six transformed chairs on display in the Miller Nichols Library

Every day people miss work and class due to domestic violence.

As a part of the Empty Chairs Campaign, the UMKC Violence Prevention & Response Program collaborated with the Department of Art and Art History to raise awareness about domestic violence and how it affects members of our community.

Students from the Art Department’s 3D Design class transformed chairs into works of art that speak to the theme of domestic violence, and displayed them across campus throughout the month of October.

Now, these chairs are on display together at the Miller Nichols Library. Come see these powerful works of art and learn what you can do to reduce the impact of domestic violence.

Visit to get help for yourself or someone you know, find useful resources, information, or ways to get involved.

If you or someone you know needs help, contact UMKC’s Confidential Advocate Michelle Kroner, or visit the link above.
