With last week's heat wave still in our minds, attending an event with molten metal might not sound as enticing as intended. However, it's the art here that will be hot and (hopefully) not the attendees. During the day, people will be able to watch as 11 iron artists and four interns create pieces live using a 150-pound ladle that pours liquid metal into molds. Folks who attended the mold-making workshop the previous week will be able to take the piece they created using an etched sand mold home. Food and drinks will also be available throughout the day, and found-object musicians Savage Aural Hotbed will play live at the event.
Sat., Aug. 3, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., 2013
