The art and athletic communities of Savannah came together Thursday night to support a local non profit organization that raises awareness for personal safety.
The Art and Sole event benefiting the Rape Crisis Center took place in Midtown.
Fleet Feet donated the shoes and City Market artists donated the talent to make the works of art with various themes.
The result was a live auction to raise money for the RCC.
“I was thinking about not only the sole of a shoe but the human soul and what we go through spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and all the types of different terrain we travel,” said artist Jonathan Gregory Keller, about his inspiration for his creation.
In 2015, the Rape Crisis Center provided care to 131 rape victims. Organizers hope the art will serve as conversation pieces for the resources available at the RCC and the need for funding.
