Columbus Ohio Gun Violence Memorial Project Rememberance Collection Event Visibility May 21, 2022 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET Church of Christ of the Apostolic Faith, 1200 Brentnell Ave, Columbus, OH 43219 Thank you for your interest in the Gun Violence Memorial Project. We will be collecting objects in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 11am-4pm. The memorial seeks to preserve individual memories and communicate the magnitude of the issue in built space and hopes to foster a national healing process that begins with a recognition of the collective loss and its impact on society. It is now open at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. It comprises four houses, each built of 700 glass bricks, a reference to the number of people in the U.S. killed by guns every week. Over time, the bricks will continue to be filled with remembrance objects donated by immediate family members of loved ones taken by gun violence, that reveal the personal narratives of each victim. To learn more about the project and the size and other requirements of submitting your remembrance object, please visit https://www.gunviolencememorialproject.org/ (click 'contribute an object')
