More Info

Begun in 2016, the Victims Quilt Project serves as a way to remember victims of mass shootings. Starting with the shooting at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, Julie made a quilt block with the name of each person who died in a mass shooting in which more than 10 people were massacred at once. To date, she has made 310 blocks in 14 quilts. This exhibit includes all 14 memorial quilts, plus "Bullet Holes," in which 796 holes represent victims of mass shooting events large and small from 1990 to 2018, and "In Our Sights," which includes pages from The New York Times covering the shooting in Las Vegas in 2017.

Reception: April 27, 2019 from 4 - 6pm
