SAN JOSE (KRON) - The time-honored art of quilting may seem like an odd medium for expressing one's views about guns and gun violence.
But now that's exactly why people are beating a path to a new, if somewhat controversial exhibit at a museum in San Jose.
"Guns: Loaded Conversations" is the latest show at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
The politically-themed exhibit is a collection from artists who have something to say about gun violence.
Patron Judi Venuto of San Lorenzo is very impressed.
"I'm a quilter myself so seeing this in terms of the social impact is just a little on the awesome side," she said.
Produced by artists from across the country, the various works depict lax gun laws while paying tribute to the victims of gun violence.
