Anti-Violence Car Riddled with 6,000 Bullets on Display in Chicago

(Tribune) Robert Torres, founder of the nonprofit Parents for Peace and Justice, said gun violence has become so commonplace in Chicago that it seems as if the public has become immune.

“If the news is not moving you, if these mothers and families are not moving you and impacting you, we’re going to bring you something … that brings a conversation and gets you involved,” he said.

That something is a Volkswagen riddled with more than 6,000 bullet holes.

The vehicle is Shot Up Car, an art instillation by Canadian artist Viktor Mitic, and it will travel for three days throughout Chicago beginning Thursday outside New City Fellowship Church in the 1300 block of North Rockwell Street. It will then be on display Friday at City Hall, Millennium Park, The Bean and Grant Park. On Saturday, the exhibit will roll through spots in Wicker Park and Lincoln Park and end up at Wrigley Field.
