Youth

MBACD will be exhibiting sculptures created by Wirt-Emerson students in a week long workshop facilitated by Calumet Artist Residency, where students will create sand molds using local sand that will then be positively cast by pouring molten iron into the molds. Iron will be salvaged from scrap yards to introduce an element of recycling. This process resembles the process used in local steel mills and the workshop combines disciplines and incorporates lessons in math, science, and art.
