Image: Susanne Slavick, Asclepius Viridis Wall shows a "wall" of milkweed plants native to the south central and south eastern United States.
These plants attract monarch butterflies, a migratory species that travels over 2500 miles each year. These species allude to freedom of movement-- a more welcoming reception to those seeking refuge, safety, reunification with families, a living wage and a better life.
Co-curated by Edgar Arcenaux.

Unloaded is a nationally traveling multimedia group exhibition that explores the historic and social issues surrounding the divisive nature of gun ownership in the United States.
Curated by Susanne Slavick, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University, the exhibition presents a number of perspectives on the image and impact of guns in contemporary culture, though none endorse them as a means to an end. Works by twenty-two artists and collaboratives touch upon a host of issues surrounding access to and use of firearms across a range of demographic categories.
The artists in Unloaded visualize the power of the gun as icon and instrument. They explore the role that firearms continue to play in our national mythologies, influencing suicide rates, individual and mass murder statistics, incidents of domestic violence, and the militarization of civilian life. Some show the power that guns wield in our daily realities and personal fantasies. Others mourn and resist that power, doing everything they can to take it away, believing there are better ways to resolve conflicts, ensure safety, and keep the peace.
