SAQA EXHIBITION / EVENT
• San Jose, California
April 22, 2018 - July 15, 2018
An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of gun violence. The pieces selected for this exhibition will spark conversations relating to this important societal issue.
Artists were encouraged to explore the heritage and current cultural norms reflected in gun ownership; to consider how their personal experience with guns may influence their opinions; to find ways to engage those of differing opinions to listen to each other in a thoughtful manner; and to investigate and encourage community initiatives that may inspire action in seeking solutions.
Opening reception on Sunday, April 22, 2018.
