Ultimately they collected and deactivated over 7000 guns. These weapons were then welded together into 14 panels that make up a massive dark cube measuring 8’ tall, 12’ long and 8’ wide, and weighing almost 20,000 lbs. The walls of this sculpture are comprised of handguns, rifles, semi- and fully automatic weapons, landmines, grenades, rocket launchers and bullets.
The sculpture is accompanied by photographs of individuals who are victims of and, in some cases, survivors of gun violence, and a space for visitors to reflect on and react to the Gun Sculpture. This artwork demands our attention and makes a clear statement about the impact of guns and their proliferation throughout the globe.
