Bradley McCallum, the founding director of Conjunction Arts, originally established the non-profit as a vehicle to self-produce his own work. These projects are a representative sampling of this early work. 

The Manhole Cover Project: A Gun Legacy, 1996

Taking on the issue of gun violence, 228 manhole covers with the exact weight of the 11,194 guns confiscated by Connecticut law enforcement between January 1, 1992 and July 31, 1996 were installed in front of Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum. Accompanying these manhole covers were testimonials of Hartford residents who had been impacted by the use of these weapons.

Shroud: Mothers' Voices, 1992

Created for Bradley McCallum’s MFA thesis at Yale, this work responded to stories of victims of gun violence in New Haven, CT. McCallum created a series of floor length veils and video vignettes that told the stories of mothers whose children had died due to violence.
