The 8th International Conference will engage the theme of Post Industrial Iron, Divergence, Dialog, and New Directions offering an opportunity for the International community to come together share conceptual ideas, discuss process and view finished projects.
The conference will take place in the historical "Electric City," Scranton, PA. This week-long event will honor and celebrate the works of professionals, scholars, and students from around the world.
Community practice, public sculpture, and the conceptualization and fabrication of art through pre-conference workshops will be key components. The historic setting and contemporary initiatives in Scranton, PA provide an example of an iron community engaged in contemporary practice.
Conference workshops, panels, performances, demonstrations, and lectures invite the cultivation of aesthetic and conceptual dialog between practicing artists, students, iron enthusiasts, researchers, and art historians.
