Beautiful Lives Lost Portrait Project

I've enlisted 58 artists to help with an important project to remember those killed in the Las Vegas Mass Shooting

Visual Poem: Beautiful Lives Lost Portrait Project from Mary Anne Funk on Vimeo.

It is easy to feel powerless in the face of terrible news, but as artists, one thing we can do is make portraits of the individuals who died to call attention to the senseless violence and show they are not just another statistic. We can honor their memories and share a loving gesture with grieving families and communities. Kindness often begets kindness. We hope to continue this cycle rather than violence. #beautifulliveslostportraitproject
