ARTillery: Contemporary Art Influenced by Weaponry

Since the inception of our great country, firearms and weapons in general have become an influential part of American society. This fascination remains prevalent in our current culture and is reflected in movies, news, politics, government policies and even childhood memories (Who can say they have never used a squirt gun growing up?). This exhibition examines the appearance and meaning of weaponry in contemporary art.
