Womc DC - April 26, 2014

Weapons of Mass Change travels to Washington DC for its second stop after premiering in Richmond, VA. The show, which benefits humanitarian missions around the world, enlists an eclectic mix of talented artists to transform weapons into art objects, stripping them of the violence that they are commonly associated with. This act serves as a reminder of art’s powerful influence and the need for it especially in war torn areas of the world.  The pieces ranging from handguns to grenades to riot shields, will be sold with partial proceeds going to the "Sniper Campaigns" which are humanitarian missions throughout the world started by the artists of The Army of Snipers who will also complete pieces for the show. During their first sniper campaign the crew worked with the Little Lotus Project, http://littlelotusproject.org/ in the Thai/Burma border to bring color to the lives of refugee children through collaborative art projects.

In this edition of the show, Army of Sniper’s founder Aaron “Woes” Martin will bring life to the walls of Blind Whino where the show will be on exhibit by painting a mural in the lounge area. Bringing color to these walls just illustrates the importance of these humanitarian aid projects and provides the perfect backdrop to the exhibit.
