Guns In The Hands Of Artists: Change through the Lens of Art

In collaboration with the New Orleans Police Department, the City of New Orleans, New Orleans City Council, and the Youth Empowerment Project, gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara and artist Brian Borello started decommissioning guns and handing them to a variety of diverse artists to interpret. Taken off the streets of New Orleans via a gun buyback program, the guns have been distributed to over 30 internationally known artists to use as the raw materials in making works of art dealing with the issue of guns in our society.

Festival: 2015
