Our field trip is going to be at the Brooklyn Museum, to see the mural that made the cover of TIME Magazine: Guns In America at the show JR Chronicles.
To tell this uniquely American story, TIME partnered with JR, the artist and photographer known in part for his murals around the world that portray communities in all their complexity. In three U.S. cities profoundly affected by guns—Dallas, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.—we invited people to share their views and describe their experiences in a search for common ground.
In all, JR filmed and photographed 245 people—hunters and activists, teachers and police officers, parents and children—to create this mural for TIME’s November 5, 2018, cover.
