ERASE was a participatory memorial art installation launched in September, 2013 at the ArtPrize festival in Grand Rapids, MI. It started with the hand-drawing of a 20ft long AR-15 rifle and ended with exhibit participants erasing pieces of the rifle. Each eraser was hand-stamped with the name and age of a victim from the Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora and Newtown massacres. The recreation of this art installation will provide our crowdfunding campaign with a very powerful and quite relevant emotional experience. Tickets to the event will be available as one of our “perks” on Indiegogo.
