Opening Reception—“UP IN ARMS”

From the CFA:

“UP IN ARMS” presents a number of perspectives on the image and impact of guns in contemporary culture, though none endorse them as a means to an end. Works by thirteen artists touch upon a host of issues surrounding access to and the use of firearms, examining and representing the role that guns continue to play in our national mythologies and pathologies, suicide and homicide rates, domestic violence, and mass media.
This exhibition is being presented in conjunction with Wesleyan’s annual Shasha Seminar for Human Concerns, which will be focused on “Guns in American Society” on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, 2017. For more information, please visit http://www.wesleyan.edu/shasha. Exhibition on display through Sunday, December 10, 2017. No handguns or other firearms (even if all permits, licenses and registrations are up to date and available), explosives, or weapons of any kind are allowed on the Wesleyan campus at any time and for any reason whatsoever
