Turning guns into art

Turning guns into artDeseria Galloway of the Twin Cities Anti-Violence Coalition and Wellspring Second Chance Center is one of the few dedicated community members who is committed to keeping the Twin Cities safe. “The Twin Cities Anti-Violence Coalition’s mission is to support efforts in the community by addressing violence on every level, specifically gun violence,” said Galloway who recently took the guns she and others collected last year at the ‘Bury Our Guns, Not Our People’ Gun Buy Back and turn them into art.

With the help of Smith Foundry sculpture John Poole and Lieutenant Gregory Reinhardt of the Minneapolis Police Department, Galloway was able to melt over 70 weapons down into two separate sculptures that will be given to NorthPoint, Inc. and Shiloh Temple International Ministries, host sites, to the buy back. Galloway believes for each gun they have collected about two lives have been saved. She truly feels it is important to take these symbols of negativity and turn them into symbols of positivity and change.
