ACTION: MAKE IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND AN AMERICAN GUN CRISIS
Throughout these first 100 days, Cara Levine has been carving wood replicas of common objects mistaken by police as weapons that resulted in police shootings. Working alongside social practice artist Amanda Eicher, these artists seek to engage conversation between the public and law enforcement.
All of the objects on the card above have been mistaken for guns by police officers in civilian shootings. We do not know the outcome of these shootings. We do know that none of these items are guns. We want to understand this error. We want to understand through questioning, grieving, looking, and making. We want to understand together, as community.
Please join artists Amanda Eicher and Cara Levine in an effort to honor and understand what is before us through a collaborative art making workshop and dialogue.
