An art installation that transforms ongoing Chicago murders into resonating acts of love.
“Each one of these stones is a hand painted tribute that commemorates a Chicago homicide victim (January 2014 – present). Soon, we will have hand-painted over 500 rocks, each affixed with the name of someone who was murdered in Chicago during the past 17 months. The rocks, acting as little memorials, will be spelled into the word “TRADE.” During the installation, the public will be invited to take a rock in exchange for committing a random act of love towards some other person, anywhere and at any time in the future. We want to honor Chicago homicide victims with something kind and beautiful.” – Eur Moma. 5.17.2015.
