Souls Shot Art Exhibition

The Souls Shot Portrait Project memorializes victims of gun violence through art. The project connects artists with the families of victims to create intimate portraits of the lives that have been lost to guns. The conversations with family and friends enable the artists to learn details about each victim and capture the essence of each tragic loss.

A selection of 31 of these portraits were on display in the McNichol Art Gallery in February and March. Glenn Holmstrom, director of the gallery, described the exhibit as a manifestation of Neumann’s RISES values in visual art. "The exhibition reflects reverence and our university’s commitment to social change for the greater good,” he said.
