Unconscious bias can be deadly, and contributes to one of the biggest violence issues in America. We have to do something about it. Howl! Happening is pleased to introduce No More Black Targets.

NoMoreBlackTargets (NMBT) is a collective of artists—diverse in backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities—working in paint, digital media, patternmaking and also physical installations to bring new artwork to life. The collective paints on the actual live black silhouette paper targets used in shooting ranges, an artistic approach that raises awareness while protesting the senseless and unlawful “black and Brown” shootings in past and recent years here in America.

This art project seeks to eliminate the use of the most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm: a menacing black silhouette. In shooting ranges, in permitting and instruction environments, anywhere someone is learning to use a firearm.
To raise awareness, the targets will be replaced and painted over with artistic interpretations that turn the menacing black silhouettes into beautiful, colorful and optimistic art.

The NMBT collective stands for “More paint. Less hate.”
Prior to the February 2017 launching, NMBT has gotten great development and awesome creative direction from Laurent Leccia and the team at FRED FARID.

NMBT also partnered with the NYSEC – the New York Society of Ethical Culture.
