Bronze Pour - FREE public art event - & workshops July 18-19 in Lanesboro

A workshop participant carves into a sand resin mold to prepare a design for the Pour.

Lanesboro, Minn. - Lanesboro Arts Center will host the 2014 Bronze Pour in the Gateway Park (across from the softball field, off Cty 8) on Saturday, July 19 from 1-6 p.m. This is a FREE public event for all ages. The Pour will be led by nationally-acclaimed local artist Karl Unnasch, and is held in cooperation with the City of Lanesboro.

Lanesboro Arts Center is offering a “Create your own bronze sculpture” workshop, where participants will carve a reverse relief design into pre-made sand resin molds, preparing their design for the Pour and its transformation into a bronze sculpture. Workshop participants can choose from one of two sessions: Friday, July 18 from 6-8 p.m., and Saturday, July 19 from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. The workshop will be held in the Gateway Park and is open to all ages. The workshop is $25/mold, with registration in advance or day of each workshop. The molds will be approximately 4” x 6”, in the shape of a human footprint. Any text or imagery is possible! Guidance and tools are provided by Karl Unnasch and his team of artists. Finished bronze sculptures can be picked up at the site of the Pour on Sunday, July 20 at 10 a.m. That morning’s schedule will include the unveiling of sculptures, clean-up, and surface preparation/patina finishing. If participants are not able to be there on Sunday morning, sculptures may be picked up at a later date at the Lanesboro Arts Center. To register for the workshop, or for more information, call 507-467-2446.

Folks might be wondering, what exactly IS a Bronze Pour? It is a FREE Public Art Event where people can enjoy the excitement of “art in the making.” Artist Karl Unnasch and workshop participants will have prepared sand resin molds – carving a reverse design – ready to transform into bronze sculpture. Karl’s crew will stoke the gas furnace, and melt bronze (hundreds of pounds of reclaimed brass, wires, pipes, and copper) to the hot, hot temperature of approximately 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. Bronze consists of at least 51 percent copper, plus tin and nickel and everything from yellow brass to red and silicon bronze. The silicon makes it richer and gives it an extra shine (like hand bells). “Bronze is a friendlier metal than iron,” Karl says. “It is more malleable, it bends rather than breaks, and it melts at a lower temperature.”

The Bronze Pour and the Bronze Workshop are part of the Lanesboro Arts Campus initiative. Artist Karl Unna .....
