Sculpture Chair Carolyn Ottmers Oversees Iron Pour Jamboree

On September 30 the Times of Northwest Indiana announced the inaugural Iron Pour Jamboree hosted by the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park at Governors State University. An affiliate event of this year’s ISC Sculpture Conference, the Jamboree provides “a unique opportunity to see how metal sculptures are created, to produce your own art, and to witness spectacular results when fire and iron come together.” On October 6, SAIC faculty member Carolyn Ottmers (Chair, Sculpture) will “supervise the melting of 5,000 pounds of iron for pouring into scratch molds,” allowing artists and students to craft their own metal sculptures.
