Inspired by the play The Gospel of Loving Kindness, this exhibition portrays the souls of children murdered in Chicago:



Our goal is to honor the memories of a generation too often lost in obscurity. Our hope is to bring their lives, aspirations and dreams to the forefront. Our wish is to call attention to the horror of the war that is taking place almost daily on the streets of Chicago.


A portion of all sales will be donated to the following
anti-violence organizations:


Alternative Schools Network


Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence
