Marilyn da Silva,

About the project:

31 Americans are murdered with guns daily and 151 are treated for gun assault. Our firearm homicide rate is 20x higher than the COMBINED rates of 22 peer countries. The problem is urgent and warrants an exhibition dedicated to exploring the complex issues surrounding gun violence. As metalsmiths, we harness skills to alter guns to produce sculpture; the notion of turning Swords into Plowshares.

The Innovative Merger of Art & Guns to Inspire New Expressions, or IMAGINE PEACE NOW Exhibition, is a call to arms, hearts and hands intended especially for contemporary metal artists. Included work will respond to, and initiate conversations regarding, the gun violence so prevalent in American culture today.

All works will be for sale. A percentage of sales proceeds will be donated to the Brady Campaign, the Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence and also to the Society of North American Goldsmiths.

Jurors:

Emily Zilber, Boston MFA
Monica Moses, American Craft Magazine
Shepard Fairey, Artist
Boris Bally, Metalsmith
