Mickey Johnston, Bang-le Bracelet, 1997, steel, diamond, gold, pearl, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the artist in honor of Professor Robert Ebendorf, 1999.35
This bracelet was created for an exhibition in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, called Artists of a Different Caliber. Twenty artists were each given a gun by the Pittsburgh Police Department and asked to create a piece that spoke against random gun violence. Many of the artists chose to create small sculptures with disturbing messages, but Mickey Johnston was determined to make a piece that he thought beautiful.
