Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley, in partnership with The Robby Poblete Foundation is proud to announce a groundbreaking new project entitled “The Art of Peace, Alameda County.”
This collaborative effort will engage local artists to create three dimensional art pieces out of the remains of dismantled firearms.
Art ... From Darkness
“Gun violence continues to plague our communities. This project brings renewed awareness and attention to our ongoing efforts to end this crisis,” says DA O’Malley. “Over the past 30 years, the DA’s Office has amassed over one thousand firearms that were collected as evidence in criminal prosecutions.
The time has come to turn these objects of violence into beacons of light.”
