Westport Artist Collective Pays It Forward Image
“Pay It Forward,” an installation of decommissioned gun parts from a Hartford gun buyback by Westport Artist Collective members Tammy Winser and Dale Najarian, greeted opening night visitors tonight to the exhibit “#UNLOAD: Guns in the Hands of Artists” at the Fairfield University Art Museum, Walsh Gallery at the Quick Center. These remnants of 68 guns, including three assault rifles and a machine gun, will be distributed to a select group of Connecticut artists who will create new art for an exhibit to be presented in partnership with ArtSpace, New Haven. Notes an explanation beside the installation: “Thus we recreate the model provided by the Guns in the Hands of Artists Foundation and pay it forward here in Connecticut.”  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) photo
