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 project began in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 2016, and the resulting exhibitions have featured many talented artists throughout the years.
The mission of The Souls Shot Portrait Project is to bring attention to and memorialize the lives lost and their families’ lives tragically altered due to gun violence. Too many times, those killed by violent means are remembered by the catastrophe of their final days. This project seeks to bring back the positive memories of those same individuals.
