Telling just some of the stories of the lives lived by the victims of gun violence is the goal of Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence. For this important project twenty-five artists were paired with families or friends of victims in Philadelphia. The portraits created illuminate those precious lives to encourage the viewer to focus beyond the statistics and see the individuals and the poignant cost of gun violence. The opening on November 3 at 6 p.m. will include a reception and 7:30 p.m. program featuring Senator Art Haywood and The Healing Presence Singers.
The exhibition will be on view throughout the month of November from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. (Exhibition closed November 22. 23 and 24.)
