 Binghamton University will host the third annual Invitational Iron Pour, starting at 1 p.m. Friday, April 11, in sculpture studios located in room 154 of the Fine Arts Building on the University campus.  This event is free and open to the public.

The day will culminate with an “Ice Pyrotechnic Performance Pour Piece” by Ken Payne.

This event is sponsored by the Rosefsky Memorial Visiting Artist Endowment, The Dean of Harpur College Dean’s Office, the University Provost’s Office, Sodexo Campus Services, Ben Weitsman and Sons, Tonawanda Coke Company, Harbison-Walker Refractories Company, and Pacemaker Steel Company.
