Event Time and Date
The event brings to campus artist David Hess' The Gun Show. It is an art installation comprised of 50 'guns' which are fake and in fact are made of common household objects. The installation, event, and subsequent panel are to help students think about and discuss the rise of gun violence and its impact on daily life in our country, as well as to expose to students the important role of art as a form of reflection and activism in the world around us. Students will be allowed to freely explore the art installation all day and all are welcome to attend the panel which will include a diverse selection of professionals in fields related to the themes of the art.
We will be hosting the art installation in the Glass Pavilion and the panel in the Arellano Theater, both in Levering Hall for convenience. This will prevent the concern of weather as well as allow any students, faculty, staff, or other community members who choose to attend to explore the installation at any time of day convenient to them as well as join us for the panel, although presumably fewer people will attend the panel in the afternoon.
