Art Student Project Protests University’s Response to Rape

A Columbia University student who says she was raped in her dorm room on campus is launching a performance art piece to call attention to her experience as well as the largerepidemic of sexual assault at US colleges. Emma Sulkowicz, now a senior majoring in visual arts, will carry a dorm room mattress with her everywhere she goes “for as long as I attend the same school as my rapist,” she told the Columbia Spectator. “The piece could potentially take a day, or it could go on until I graduate.”
