Massachusetts College of Art and Design
Sign Up
Dewey Square on The Rose Kennedy Greenway, 100 Atlantic Avenue, Boston

Due to forecasted rain, the Iron Pour on the Greenway has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 22nd
 

In honor of the 150th Anniversary of the college, please join us in celebrating the spirit of creativity, craft, and community that is central to MassArt’s past, present, and future.

 

Marjee Levine and the MassArt Iron Corps proudly present, MassArt 150: Generations of Iron, a tribute to community and kinship.


To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of MassArt, we will use hot iron to highlight the most important thing we have built together: our community. This spectacular performance pays tribute to all those who have come through our program over its 16 years, linking the generations to each other, both figuratively and literally. 3000-degree molten iron will illuminate their names, throwing sparks into the night sky as a memorial wall is constructed. Simultaneously, students and alumni will work together pouring structural wedges that become physical joinery. These connections hold through iron fireworks, dancing green flames, and the glow of the possible. We will witness barriers burn away, and doorways reveal themselves through the ashes. As this group unites in what can only be described as a “fiery family reunion,” the MassArt Iron Corps will choreograph the elements, with the strength that comes from a deep reverence for this material and each other.

Earlier in the day join the Make Your Own Sculpture session as families carve designs that are later cast in aluminum.

 

Make Your Own Sculpture: 1 p.m. 

Iron Pour Performance: 5 p.m.

Rain date: October 22, 2023
