An Invitation to Participate in Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence
For families and friends of victims of gun violence.
Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence
Artists will be paired randomly with families and/or friends of victims of gun violence and create a portrait of the victim. The artists participating in this project work in a variety of styles and media. They are charged with making a portrait in the broad sense of the word - a work that will convey the essence of the person - NOT ALL THE PORTRAITS WILL BE IN A REALISTIC STYLE. If you look at the images from the 1st and 2nd exhibitions, you will see the range of approaches. The mission of the project is to convey to the viewers the unique quality of each of the lives portrayed in order to communicate the personal loss to the families but also the immense loss to our communities due to the scourge of gun violence.
You will be expected to supply photographs, memorabilia, and stories about your loved one to help the artist know about the life they lived and how best to portray that life.
Also important to note, THE PORTRAITS CREATED BELONG TO THE ARTISTS. Many artists decide to give the portrait to the family or friend, BUT THIS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE AND IS NOT REQUIRED NOR TO BE EXPECTED. Any such arrangements are between the artist and the family member or friend and neither Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence nor Heeding God's Call to End Gun Violence will be involved in any way.
Families/friends will receive one full color print of the portrait and one full color catalog from the exhibition featuring the images and commentary.
I have read the description of the project and understand the terms of participation.
