National Bronze Sculpture Symposium

Four national and area artists will participate in a small abstract Bronze Sculpture Symposium that will take place on the campus of Antioch College from October 13 to 26. Featuring an ancient practice – bronze casting – dating back thousands of years, but rarely seen, the symposium will engage and educate community members, students, and visitors from Yellow Springs and the surrounding Greater Miami Valley. All are invited to observe the artists at work during the day, plus attend a free evening series of related lectures and presentations that will culminate in a dramatic pouring of molten bronze at sunset on Saturday, October 26. The pour will be supervised by Austin sculptor and foundry chief Bernie Carreno.

Why bronze? Why now? Utilizing a very traditional medium, this symposium challenges the artists (selected after being scored by a national jury) to reimagine bronze in a contemporary discussion about its sculptural potential. Each artist will create three small abstracts to be cast and installed in 2014 on a Bronze Sculpture Trail in downtown Yellow Springs – the first of its kind in the area. In addition, a limited edition of bronze sculptures will be available for purchase.

Following the Bronze Symposium, an educational partnership with the Yellow Springs schools and the City of Kettering will sponsor aluminum pours for their students, utilizing relief sand molds. All events of the National Bronze Sculpture Symposium are supported in part by awards from the Ohio Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Yellow Springs Community Foundation. The Symposium is a Yellow Springs Experience, which is produced by the Yellow Springs Arts Council in collaboration with other creative community partners.

I invite you to explore the power of an Antioch College education. “Celebrate Diversity at Antioch” is a unique admission event that lends a voice to diversity in all its manifestations. Hear from multiple generations of alumni as well as current students about how their voyage through life has forever been strengthened by truly meaningful engagement with the world around them through Antioch.

By now, you may know about our unique cooperative education program. Combining a strong liberal arts education with meaningful work experience produces a different kind of student, one that challenges their education to be more than a typical college experience. By the time you finish your studies at Antioch you will be more than ready for the next step your in your life - you will be hungry for it.
