Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence Art Exhibition

From January 16 through February 14, Shadyside Presbyterian Church will host the final showing for the 2023 Pennsylvania traveling exhibition of Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence in the Sharp Atrium.

The Souls Shot Portrait Project pairs fine artists with families and friends of victims of gun violence. The artists create portraits using diverse approaches and emphasize the individuality and uniqueness of the victims portrayed. The exhibition is a moving tribute, memorializing the victims and leading viewers to a place of empathy through the power of art.
