Iron Pour with Resident Artist

Iron Pour with Resident Artist

Sep 28, 11:00am - Sep 28, 4:00pm

Crystal Mountain
12500 Crystal Mountain Dr
Thompsonville, MI  49683 Map

Michigan Legacy Art Park's 2017 resident artist Theresa Smith will be demonstrating the dynamic process of iron casting on September 28.

Drop in between 11:00am – 4:00pm for a public event as the artist’s work comes to life.

At this “iron pour,” scrap iron is melted in the 3,000° heat of a special furnace. The iron is then poured into the “scratch molds” created by area students, as well as into the form the artist has made based on her investigation of natural shapes in the Art Park.
It is an exciting display of art and craftsmanship and science brought together to create something new and meaningful.

The event will take place in the gravel parking lot near Totem Park at Crystal Mountain.

Boyne Falls, MI  49713 Map

We love October for one reason...it means it's almost winter! Okay, so we also like when the leaves change color, that there are pumpkins and mums on every corner, and the taste of a nice fall Michigan brew. We like all of these things so much, that we decided to throw an epic party to celebrate! It's called Skitoberfest and you don't want to miss it.
