The Garden District Book Shop hosts a book signing for Jonathan Ferrara Gallery’s Guns in the Hands of Artists exhibition catalogue. The 2014 exhibition asked over 30 artists to transform guns from a New Orleans buyback program into works of art. The event includes a conversation with gallerist Jonathan Ferrara, actor Harry Shearer, New Orleans City Councilmember Latoya Cantrell, and Melissa Sawyer from the Youth Empowerment Project.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the store’s website. To learn more about “Guns in the Hands of Artists,” read Nathan C. Martin’s review from the Art Review archives.
