What is Art is My Weapon?

Art is My Weapon MN aims to use art and creativity to spark social change. Following the momentum of The Guns in the Hands of Artists exhibit We hosted a gun buy-back in the Twin Cities. Supported by the Minneapolis Police Department and The City of Minneapolis the weapons were decommissioned and distributed to Minnesota artists to create statements about the impact of gun violence in our community. We have been able to engage the public, community leaders, organizations, elected officials, and the media etc. in respectful nonpartisan conversations around gun violence that ultimately lead to greater public awareness, conscientious community action and responsible solutions to reducing gun violence.​

Please be sure to add our Facebook page to keep up with our artists and their journey as a participating artists.
