FSU to Participate in Fall 2014 Iron Pour

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

Fairmont State University and West Virginia University students will participate in the second annual Fall 2014 Iron Pour, hosted by the WVU School of Art and Design.

Fairmont State sculpture students, technology students and faculty members, as well as students and faculty from regional universities, will collaborate for the event and utilize molten metal to create custom-made metal artworks.

The event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14, in the sculpture/ceramics kiln yard at the rear entrance of the Creative Arts Center on the Evansdale Campus of WVU in Morgantown. Admission is free and open to the public. Food will be provided by the Morgantown restaurant Atomic Grill. Attendees have an opportunity to make their own piece of cast iron artwork.

For more information on the event or how to purchase a scratch block mold, contact Jeremy Entwistle, FSU Sculpture Coordinator, at Jeremy.entwistle@fairmontstate.edu or find the FSU Sculpture Facebook page at www.facebook.com/FSUsculpture.
