11 a.m. – The Creation of Contemporary Cast Iron Art
Join artist and art educator, Tom Fox, for a presentation highlighting the use of cast iron as a contemporary sculptural medium. We will cover a brief history of iron, its linkage to science and its importance in establishing modern lifestyles and supporting the world we live in. Learn about allied practices such as furnace design and construction as well as pattern and moldmaking necessary for the smelting and casting processes. We will also discuss the current state of cast iron in the larger continuum of contemporary sculpture locally, in the United States, and abroad. There will be a question and answer session after the presentation.
