First Friday Evening Science of Art: Fiery Foundry

Location: WonderLab Museum
Date: May 3, 2013 - May 3, 2013
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Members: Free
Nonmembers: Half-price general admission ($3.50)
Audience: All ages

Enjoy half-price admission and watch artists from the Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum demonstrate the dramatic hot metal casting process using a large traveling foundry at WonderLab. Visitors who carved a scratch block mold in advance can see their own art being created at the molten aluminum pour. (We will have more scratch blocks available to purchase - $20 each - for those who wish to see their own art being created at the Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum's Annual Aluminum Pour on May 11.)

Related visitor activities at WonderLab this evening include making a metal-relief pendant and making a metal souvenir by carving a miniature plaster mold for a low-temperature foundry. A small-plate meal, freshly prepared by Bloomingfoods, will be available to buy in the WonderLab café.
