Iron in Alabama: Sculpture students travel to National Conference on Cast Iron Art

Posted by Gabe Weintraub

During the week of April 11, five sculpture students and foundry club members traveled to the Sloss Furnaces, a national historic landmark in Birmingham, Ala., to participate in the 2011 National Conference on Cast Iron Art.

The students participated in a number of iron pours, and also competed in a contest for student-made cupolas - specialized furnaces for melting iron. The Skidmore cupola won an award for production. The students were accompanied by Professor John Galt, of the studio art department.
