Trigger Warning – call for art dealing with gun violence in America

Trigger Warning – call for art dealing with gun violence in America

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, February 29, 2020

Trigger Warning
Exhibition dates: May 1 – June 6, 2020
Sweetwater Center for the Arts Gallery, Sewickley, PA.

Gun violence is an epidemic and a public health crisis, yet as a country we cannot agree on any solutions. As we debate, more guns are made, sold and used, and people continue to perish. The emotional toll on our society is strong and finds its way into the works of artists trying to grapple with the issues surrounding gun violence. Trigger Warning seeks works from artists that tackle the complex relationship America has with its guns and the destruction left in its wake.
