October 2023—On October 1, 2017, a heavily armed man in an upper story of a Las Vegas hotel shot and killed 58 people at an open air music festival. The gunfire wounded 413 more; at least 450 were injured in the panic that ensued.
April 2023—Remember how overloaded our metaphorical tree of Soul Box panels was last year? We have been successfully trimming it down by sending out Branches all around the country, where they can grow awareness of the gun violence epidemic in their new locales.
November 2022—Imagine The Soul Box Project as a Giving Tree grown huge with panels of Soul Boxes displaying the memories, love, and concern of everyone who has participated. This bountiful tree is overgrowing its space in Portland, Oregon.
August 2022—We are in the process of planning an effective way for activists to nimbly use and share the Soul Box panels and other resources without the time, expense, and environmental impact of repetitive shipping.
July 2022— This venue, generously offered by Urban Developers + Partners, has allowed an installation of This Loss We Carry that is more dramatic than any of our other Portland exhibits. Experience the visual power of over 40,000 Soul Boxes representing U.S. gunfire deaths or injuries so far this year.
March 2022—The role of serendipity in the history of the Soul Box Project never ceases to amaze. We now have enough room for all 200,000 Soul Boxes, with a small workspace for the creation, repair and packing of panels.
