Art @ the Y presents the “Unforgotten: Humanizing the Tragic Consequences of Gun Violence"

On view in Murphy Gallery of the University YMCA from January 28, 2016 through February 2016

Victims of gun violence should not be forgotten. By sharing their stories and taking a stand, we can help keep guns out of the wrong hands, and help keep the lives of those lost Unforgotten.

Curated by the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence, "Unforgotten" remembers all gun violence victims by focusing on the stories of eight people who lost their lives. The jarring installation features life-like statues created by working closely with each of the victims’ families. Dressed in the victims’ personal clothing, they represent the image and absence of their fallen loved ones.
