Guns to Gardens

Saturday, October 7 // CCA Sculpture Garden // 5:30-6:45pm // Free 

New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence (NMPGV) is inviting you to a free event that celebrates life over death, love over hate, and art over guns.

Come and join NMPGV and watch a gun forged into a gardening tool right before your very eyes by RAWTools. Get inspired while award-winning poet Jimmy Santiago Baca reads his radical and fiery poetry. Then get your groove on to the awesome music of Eileen and the In-betweens. This indie folk band is certain to keep us moving forward. See art made from guns through our Guns to Gardens program by our very own internationally renowned sculptor Jeremy Thomas and by Santa Fe Community College art and welding students. Coats made out of gun parts by Sarah Nolan of Singular Couture will be on display.

Special guest speakers include: Santa Fe Mayor Gonzales, Valerie Plame, Warren Montoya from Rezonate Art and Jill Benjamin.
