Art helps DA's office work with victims


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Art is helping prosecutors in their fight against crime by helping the victims. Artwork by 17 artists from right here in the Cape Fear area is on display at the New Hanover County District Attorney's office. The purpose of the art is to calm victims of crime who are there to explain what they've suffered, which can be a tough thing to talk about. The art can also relieve stress on people when they are going through a trial.

The artists say they feel blessed to be a part of this.

"When I walked in here, I get very in awe of what they do here and the people they help, and I'm so glad to be a part of it and also when we hung it it was like they were made to be here," artist Sherry Thurston said.

Artwork from students at area middle and high schools is on display at the DA's office as well.
