Living in the DC area, we are at the heart of politics. Feminism has been gaining more and more traction over the years as social media platforms have given women more freedom in expressing themselves and in sharing their experiences.

Artists come from all walks of life. Not all artists start out as artists; some begin their education or careers in other fields, and realize later on that their calling is more varied than they thought.
In collaboration with Studio Gallery and IA&A at Hillyer, local artist Stephanie Mercedes will be inviting members of the public to drop clean, empty bullet casings into a homemade kiln. The bullets will be melted down into a single bell, which will be hung in the Studio Gallery as a tribute to victims of gun violence.
