presents a number of perspectives on the image and impact of guns in contemporary culture, though none endorse them as a means to an end. Works by fourteen artists touch upon a host of issues surrounding access to and the use of firearms, examining and representing the role that guns continue to play in our national mythologies and pathologies, suicide and homicide rates, domestic violence, and mass media.

This exhibition is being presented in conjunction with Wesleyan’s annual Shasha Seminar for Human Concerns, which will be focused on “Guns in American Society” on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, 2017. For more information, please click here
