The Rev. Dr. Burnett kindly offered to host the portraits at this beautiful old church. It is being renovated and the portraits are hanging in the temporary sanctuary. It is wonderful that they will be seen by worshipers. They will also be seen by the many men participating in programs relating to “Men of Faith: Restored and Renewed” which is the theme of Men’s Day on October 28.
The church is open to many other groups throughout the week and we are so glad to be able to share these souls with them.
This is the last stop of a year long tour of the portraits. The original plan was to have them on view for one month in one space. It is truly remarkable what has grown from this poignant effort of artists and families to bring attention to this tragic situation. The Second Annual Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence, a new group of souls, will premiere in November and it will also travel for one year.
