Souls Shot Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence: Artist Reception

  • Rush Arts Philadelphia 4954 Old York Road Philadelphia, PA, 19141 United States (map)

Danny Simmons, Founder of Rush Arts Philadelphia, says “I saw the exhibition first with a friend Joe Brenman, a participating artist at his synagogue in Philadelphia. Joe has passed on since then, but his portrait carries on. This exhibition of portraits of the victims of gun violence resonated deeply with me. Everyone, of course, is aware of the impact guns have on our communities but these portraits put a face to it’s the victims. These thoughtful artworks added another layer of resonance with the addition of the artist’s vision of who these people were and what they meant to the people and communities left behind by the deaths. I feel this show and others like it should have a wide audience in every community nationally affected by these terrible tragedies.”
