Last week, local artist Shannon Downey of Badass Cross Stitch came to teach the FIREwalkers to embroider guns. Shannon has been doing a project recently to end gun violence, in which people all over the world are stitching guns using a pattern she created and sending them to her to be sold at a gallery show, which will also feature Project FIRE artwork, at Pilsen Outpost Gallery on November 4. All the money made from those guns will go to Project FIRE. There’s still time to create your own gun, if you’re interested in helping out with the project. Find the pattern here and follow Shannon on Instagram here (it’s badass).
Save the date for our gallery opening on November 4th at Pilsen Outpost Gallery!
