Beating Weapons Into Artworks

Spencer Beckwith, KUNM, November 3, 2017

Since last spring, Santa Fe Community College has had access to a stockpile of decommissioned firearms.  Using the college's forging and welding facilities, students and faculty in the Art Department have transformed these metal parts into sculpture and jewelry, works of art that will be displayed this month and then auctioned off to benefit New Mexicans To Prevent Gun Violence and SFCC scholarships.


The Guns to Art Benefit show runs November 7-17 at form & concept in Santa Fe; a reception and live auction takes place on November 17. LISTEN.
