Labor and Love is excited to announce that we will be unveiling our most recent Art of Peace work, Ressurrection at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on July 23, 2019. Opening reception will take place from 6-7:30 pm and the collaborative show will be on exhibit from 7/23-8/25, 2019. Please swing by and see the phenomenal works by artists who have transformed dismantled firearms into social dialogue around gun violence. This show was in collaboration with the Robby Poblete Foundation and United Playaz.
In collaboration with the Robby Poblete Foundation, Labor and Love was commissioned by the World Peace Through Technology Foundation to build a sculpture of their mascot, a Peace Dove. “Pax Paloma” is a hand built mixed media sculpture built primarily from dismantled firearms from local gun buyback programs to get guns off the street and will be unveiled at the organization’s annual How Weird Street Faire on May 5, 2019.
We are excited and humbled to announce that we will be showing work alongside 6 other very talented sculptors in collaboration with the Alameda County DA's office and the Robby Poblete Foundation. Sculptures were made with firearms from the evidence locker in the Alameda County Courts.
Opening: May 22
Location: 471B 9th St, Oakland CA 94601
