Every Soul Box Panel Brings Together Many Voices
One display panel holds space for the number people killed by gunfire in the U.S. every day, yet each panel represents so much more. For each panel, people from across the country devoted about 24 hours folding and sending in the 98 Soul Boxes. Volunteers in our workshop spent another ten hours assembling the structure, arranging the Soul Boxes, tying them onto each panel, photographing and cataloging them.
Sponsorship Supports Our Washington, D.C., Exhibit
On October 16-17, 2021, we are scheduled to exhibit 365 panels in Washington, D.C. This dramatic visual—800 linear feet of 4-foot-tall panels—will span the width of the National Mall. The panels will display over 35,000 unique Soul Boxes, representing one year of gunfire deaths.
An additional 164,000 Soul Boxes representing unknown deaths and injuries will be carried on the Mall in a solemn procession and massed around the display panels. In all the exhibit will represent the 200,000 people killed or injured by gunfire in fewer than three years.
