Edition #3: Gun Flute

Edition #3: Gun Flute


Renowned Mexico City based artist Pedro Reyes has created a series flutes, produced from dismantled gun barrels in collaboration with The Welcome Project. This third Welcome Editions project debuted at the March for Our Lives event on March 24th, just before the speakers began. The edition of 17 was created specifically in response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting to honor the victims. Born in Mexico City, Reyes is known for transforming existing problems into ideas for a better world. This series of flutes was designed by Reyes, produced by the Cincinnati-based Irish flute maker Dave Copley with custom carrying bags created by local refugee and immigrant women. 

These flutes have been featured in the November 2018 Sculpture Magazine, performed at the 2018 ReUse Conference, and were a spotlight story in Cincinnati Magazine.

These flutes are now being sold to benefit The Welcome Project. A portion of the proceeds will also go towards a gun control organization. Because of high demand and limited availability, we are offering a tiered pricing model. The first 5 flutes have already sold, the middle of the edition (No. 6-10) are selling for $2000, and the remainder will sell for $2500. Shop early to support The Welcome Project and save!
