Pink Bow Project art installation coming to Austin

Scattered on the floor of Austin artist Karen Hawkins' studio, are thousands of pink hair bows.  

These ubiquitous symbols of a girl's childhood and innocence have become the embodiment of Ms. Hawkins' artistic vision over the last few weeks.  

As awareness and willingness to see the extent of sexual abuse becomes a national discussion, Ms. Hawkins felt the time was right for this monumental art installation.  

The exhibition opens in April, in conjunction with National Child Abuse Prevention month.
