Gun Country

Exhibition Website

Mar 10 2018 - Jul 31 2018

Issues pertaining to gun ownership, culture, and violence continue to divide the U.S., the only developed nation with a legally and voluntarily weaponized citizenry. In a moment overwhelmed by gun violence, Gun Country explores the representation of firearms in the Addison’s collection in order to examine the historical underpinnings of the country’s fixation with guns. These objects will be exhibited together for the first time in the Museum Learning Center, providing a focused look for teachers, students, and the community to discuss the pervasive cultural iconography of the gun in America.​​​
