ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A piece of art taking on the gun control debate has generated a lot of attention on the University of New Mexico campus.


The canvas hangs on a bridge between Woodward Hall and the art building. It depicts two guns pointing at each other.

The gun on the left features signs from the March for Our Lives can be seen while the gun on the right has signs from pro-Second Amendment rallies.

UNM senior Noe Barnett created the piece for his final project. It's set to hang on the bridge for a week.

"The idea is just to get people to see that there is an argument on the other side that is often times just as valid," he said. "I think people on the other sides have intentions that are oftentimes just as good as you."
