UNLOADED explores the historical and social issues surrounding the availability, use and impact of guns on culture and public health.

Highlights include Mel Chin’s "Cross for the Unforgiven," a Maltese cross made out of eight AK-47s. Calling the AK-47 a new international symbol of resistance to the West, Chin has fashioned the gun barrel tips, formerly deadly implements, into a bent and sealed likeness of the international symbol whose points represent the eight Beatitudes prescribed in the Sermon on the Mount.
