BRADY CENTER

The Escape Pod & the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence launched the “Chicago Gun Share Program,” an art installation developed in response to the lack of federal gun regulations and conflicting state laws. Designed to resemble popular bike sharing stations, the installation dramatizes the ease in which a person may obtain a weapon of war. Rather than containing bikes, the Gun Share installation holds a row of 10 replica AR-15 rifles instead. It also features signage highlighting the disparity between Illinois and Indiana state gun laws and accepts donations to the Brady Center.
