SOS ART 2014A community art show and event of creative expressions for Peace and Justice
Late May into June @The Art Academy of Cincinnati, 1212 Jackson St, downtown Cincinnati

At 11 p.m. Monday, June 18, 2012 fifteen-year-old Africa Hope was killed by a stray bullet at 1700 Vine Street, Cincinnati, Ohio. This portrait placed at the site after being in the SOS show.Winning second place in the juried Golden Ticket Art Show at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center in Clifton, Cincinnati, Ohio verified what Tom is experiencing. Realtor yard signs repainted with a portrait of a gun violence victim placed where they died, provide a positive colorful happy catalyst to solve gun violence. Help a "at Risk" person. Be part of the solution. Apathy is the problem. The signs—revered by community— are everlasting remembrances. With each sign Tom experiences something like a block buster movie with characters larger than life. He learns about the victim and meets the family. They live larger lives, the highest highs and lowest lows. The portraits are larger than art. Tom becomes a pawn in a complex battle to live in a safe productive world. Creating a painting against gun violence does not solve the problem. It is the grunt on the ground that solves gun violence. Social networks solve gun violence. Slogans, art, songs and preaching help solve gun violence but it is the grunt on the ground makes the change. Tom plans on painting at these spots looking for the beautiful. He will befriend the residences and make a change. With everyone stepping up and taking back their streets we can solve this problem. Many people are working on this problem. Many events draw attention to gun violence. He adds this ongoing project to the battle.
