This project links fine artists with families or friends of victims of gun violence.  The artists meet with the victims' loved ones and create works that relay the essence of the person being portrayed. Exhibiting these diverse portraits in traveling exhibitions brings attention to, memorializes, and humanizes the lives lost and tragically altered due to gun violence.
