Fire + Iron = Art
Curtis Arts & Humanities Center
September 24 through November 4
Opening reception: 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, September 24
Iron Pour: 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, October 8

Rian Kerrane and an army of University of Colorado Denver students, faculty, alumni and local artists working in iron will take over Curtis Arts for a celebration of art born of molten metal and fire. Along with cast-iron works, the exhibit includes installation, performance, photographs and video, and on October 8, the showpiece: a live iron pour led by Kerrane and her students in adjacent Curtis Park. See the show and meet the artist this weekend, and return in two weeks for the interactive experience: Admission is free, but for $10, you can buy a sandstone mold and see your own tile created. And there will be food trucks!
