Opening Reception: Thursday, March 22 from 6pm to 9pm
Artists Against GunViolence was created to show solidarity with the students from Parkland Florida who quickly responded to the tragic events at their school with a call to action. 40 artists from the DC area show their opposition to gun violence in a gallery show at Third Floor and additional spaces in the Petworth neighborhood to open March 22 in time for the Student led March for Our Lives rally in downtown Washington DC Saturday, March 24th.
More than 500,000 people are expected to march in DC and hundreds of thousands more in marches all over the country. In Artists Against GunViolence the artists work includes sculpture, painting, glass, works on paper and drawing.
