Slideshow: Violence Prevention Coalition Turns Guns to Art

An inside look at La Fonderie, where a group of youth volunteers and metalworkers are making art out of melted down gunmetal.

A crew of metalsmiths and youth volunteers are collaborating to melt down guns from Los Angeles's streets and turn them into art. (You can find out more about that project here.) Check out the slideshow above for a tour of La Fonderie, a metal shop in the heart of the city that's providing the resources to make the project happen.
