I.M.A.G.I.N.E. Peace Now, Boris Bally, Curator
April 6 – May 13, 2018
Opening reception: Friday, April 6, 6-8pm
More than 80 artists were challenged to create works incorporating disabled handguns procured from a gun buyback program, transforming them into art objects and expressions of peace. Jurors included Bally; Monica Moses, editor-in-chief of American Craft Magazine; Emily Zilber, the Ronald C. and Anita L. Wornick Curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and Shepard Fairey, artist, designer and activist. The show debuted at East Carolina University’s Wellington G. Gray Gallery last November and opened in Boston in February.
