#Unload: Pick Up the Pieces – Opening Party

Thursday, Oct 11, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Location: Ely Center of Contemporary Art, 51 Trumbull St, New Haven, CT 06510

#Unload: Pick Up the Pieces—an unjuried, inclusive, community-driven exhibition—aims to raise questions regarding gun violence, safety, gender, equality, and the influence of media on violence and mental health stigmas.

Culture-makers, artists, and youth from diverse backgrounds and working across media are asked to create material-driven and conceptually- charged works either with decommissioned gun parts from a Hartford buy-back program or works inspired by the theme.

The exhibition and events take place at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art.
