Classic American paintings transformed to reflect gun violence
Fourteen classic works of American art have been transformed by Brooklyn artists to reflect gun violence in modern day society.
The exhibits named "Guns Don't Kill –a re-imagining" is on display at the Repair the World NYC offices in Crown Heights.
The artists say the pieces were created in response to tragedies like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut and the riots in Ferguson Missouri.
Instances around the country where guns were at the root of the tragedies is a theme Brooklyn residents can all relate to, the artists say.
The exhibit is on display through April 30.
