NY 3/4: B-Side by Ken & Dana Gun Reclamation Project Fundraiser
GUN reclamation project: Living in NYC it seems we never go more than a week without hearing of another shooting. Rather than spend our energy on fear and contempt we decided to take the instrument that represents violence and deconstruct it’s crucial elements to be reframed as symbols of non-violence. Beyond symbolism we wanted to commit ourselves and those who purchase these pieces to keeping guns off our streets – for each work sold from this collection a contribution will be made to an upcoming NYC “Gun Buy-Back Program”. The DA’s office and the NYPD partner with local churches to offer $200 bank cards for any firearm turned at these one day events. Since 2008 5700 guns have been taken off the streets citywide.
