PHILADELPHIA - A Philadelphia project is memorializing young men and women who have had their lives cut short by the scourge of gun violence against the city's youth. "Souls Shot Portrait Project" attempts to create a more personal connection to the young victims.The powerful project contains 30 portraits and is on display at Logan Library on 1333 Wagner Avenue.
Curator and artist Laura Madeleine said the project "humanizes" the victims through building a bond with victim's families."We learn what their lives were like and memorialize and humanize them in a way they just don't get from other media," Madeleine said. "The artists all meet with families and form kind of a bond to be able to create these portraits."Philadelphia last year saw.
