Little Rock artist V.L. Cox is sending her installation "A Murder of Crows, The End Hate Collection" to to New York for exhibition Sept. 9-Nov. 11 at The Center, which serves New York's LGBT community.

"A Murder of Crows," which was shown in Little Rock at New Deal Studios, features such sculptural items as "Stained," an American flag constructed of tea bags that Cox made out of pages from the Bible; "Ready, Aim, Fire, Brimstone," a 1939 Coca-Cola cooler lid shot through with ammo and a Bible; and "No Vacancy," a metal steeple combine with a wooden cross that blinks "No Vacancy" in neon-like tubing.

Cox's description:

The End Hate Collection is a narrative body of work that looks at the history of past and present discrimination, gender issues, and social culture. The powerful pieces convey messages that are aggressive, violent, disturbing, irreverent, and even humorous, but all show us as a society where we’ve been before and where we can’t allow ourselves to go again. Cox’s goal in the End Hate series is to engage viewers responsibly in a dialogue no matter how uncomfortable. She believes that by truthfully looking in the mirror at ourselves, we take the first step in accepting the fact that we are all part of the link that needs to be repaired.

The show opens with a reception from 7-9 p.m. Sept. 9 at the gallery, 208 W. 13th St.
