Four artists, selected by a national jury, will participate in the National Bronze Sculpture Symposium at Antioch College from October 13-26.
It will feature the ancient practice of bronze casting, dating back thousands of years, and will take place at the school’s outdoor foundry area on Corry Street in Yellow Springs.
The featured artists are John Weidman of Brookline, New Hampshire, D’jean Jawrunner of Tucumcari, New Mexico, Susan Byrnes of Cincinnati and Brian Maughan of Yellow Springs. They will create 12 abstract pieces for a 2014 Bronze Sculpture Trail for downtown Yellow Springs.
The event will culminate in a dramatic pouring of molten bronze at sunset on Saturday, October 26, supervised by Austin sculptor and foundry chief Bernie Carreno.
