Divine Ammunition: The Sculpture of Al Farrow


Bellevue Arts Museum (map) Eastside
Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through May 7 2017


Recommended by Jen Graves

In introducing this exhibition—in which Al Farrow creates sculptures of reliquaries, cathedrals, synagogues, mosques, mausoleums, and devotional objects using guns and ammunition—the press release says delicately that Farrow "denigrates no one belief in his work, being mindful, discriminating, and probing toward all." But the simpler fact is that all of his objects are as terrible as beautiful, and they suggest that our strongest devotions inspire our greatest blind violence. The implications are painful and real, and the ornate pieces are a sight to see, more likable than we might wish them to be given their materials.

Bellevue Arts Museum is free on First Fridays and open until 8 pm, so May 5 is a great chance to check it out before this exhibit closes.
