If you're attending PCOC in Portland this week, stop by and see the latest 
exhibition. Free admission. (Note: Open weekdays only, so plan ahead.)

Here's the press announcement: 

Community art to reveal the gunfire epidemic. View 6,000 origami boxes 
representing the number
of people killed by gunfire every two months in the U.S. Each 3- by 3-inch Soul 
Box carries the
name of a gunfire victim, an image, or a message of protest or hope.

The Soul Box Project displays thousands of Soul Boxes in public spaces to 
illustrate the number
of victims of gunfire violence, defense, accidents and suicides. By provoking 
an emotional
response to the number of lives torn apart by gunfire, The Soul Box Project 
aims to empower
people to choose actions regarding responsible gun use that reflect their 
values, priorities and
beliefs. So far, over to 64,000 Soul Boxes have been collected from around the 
country. Visitors
to the exhibit can fold a Soul Box and add it to the display.

9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday - Friday. CLOSED WEEKENDS. Through October 8; HatchLab
