EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - On Tuesday, MSU sexual assault survivors told their stories without having to say a word.

The exhibit, "Finding Our Voice: Sister Survivors Speak" is now open to the public at the Michigan State University Museum.

It features, photos, images, and artwork from hundreds of women who were abused by former MSU doctor, Larry Nassar.

Including, 505 tiles, each one honoring a known survivor of the Nassar scandal.

The tiles were painted by survivors and their supporters with abstract designs.

The tiles are mixed in with other tiles showing photos of the girls and women at the age when the abuse started.

There's also a timeline that covers three decades of moments of failure in reporting the abuse.

Melissa Hudecz, a Sister Survivor and Co-Curator of the museum said, "I hope that this museum space is a place for education, for reflection, for dialogue and discussion between MSU, the community and the survivors."

The exhibit is open now through March 2020.

Also on Tuesday, a tree was planted at 1 p.m. just north of the museum to honor the exhibit.
