GUN SHOW: ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
The primary message that I am operating
on is that PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. I am not pro-gun advocate, nor
am I anti-gun. The questions I am asking in this exhibition: Are
guns bad? Should we eliminate access to these weapons? If we eliminate
or limit the right to bear arms, what other rights will we be
willing to give up? Are the rash of killings that are currently
taking place in America any different than at any other time in
history? And, are we more civil now than our barbaric ancestors?
While I have chosen to highlight
killers in this exhibition, it is not intended to enshrine these
people as heroes, but to discover why seemingly normal people,
people perhaps like you and I, snap and go off the deep end, believing
that eliminating someone's life is a solution, using one right
to take another's rights of life and liberty.
The "Gun Show" is a follow-up
to the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art Exhibition, "Fertile
Waste," which used garbage to reflect our 'Throw-Away culture.'
This exhibition is a reflection of the violence in our society
and presents a factual tour of killers, their motives and the
victims of these crimes.
