Art Revealing the Gunfire Epidemic

Washington, D.C.
October 16 – 17, 2021

Attend the Soul Box Project exhibit of over 200,000 Soul Boxes on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Each Soul Box holds space for one person shot—killed or injured—in the U.S. in the last three years. To begin the weekend event, hundreds of volunteers will carry these Soul Boxes in a solemn procession, honoring the lives torn apart by gunfire.
