The Soul Box Project: Art Revealing the Gunfire Epidemic

September 30, 2019 @ 9:00 am - October 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

View 6,000 origami boxes representing the number of people killed by gunfire every two months in the United States. Each 3- by 3-inch Soul Box carries the name of a gunfire victim, an image, or a message of protest or hope.

The Soul Box Project displays thousands of Soul Boxes in public spaces to illustrate the number of victims of gunfire violence, defense, accidents and suicides. By provoking an emotional response to the number of lives torn apart by gunfire, The Soul Box Project aims to empower people to choose actions regarding responsible gun use that reflect their values, priorities and beliefs. So far, over to 67,000 Soul Boxes have been collected from around the country. Visitors to the exhibit can fold a Soul Box and add it to the display.

View the free exhibit between 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. on weekdays through October 17; closed weekends.
