Artist, illustrator, and pigment maker Thomas Little, spotlighted recently in in American Craft Magazine, uses a chemical process to make guns and assault rifles into ink. During his visit to RIT, he'll explain his pigment making process, give a demonstration, and offer participants a chance to write with his "gun ink" to create a reflective work they can keep.

Students from COMM 374 Opinion Media will also be sharing written excerpts of their reflective essays on the theme of “Danger – and Hope? – in the U.S.”

This event is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, School of Communication, Journalism Program, School of Individualized Studies, English Department, Criminal Justice (Center for Public Safety Initiatives), Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies Program, and the Vignelli Center for Design Studies.

Light refreshments will be served. To make an interpreting or real-time captioning request, please contact RIT’s Department of Access Services.
