Iron PourLamar University's Department of Art will host an iron pour workshop and fundraiser in conjunction with the Texas Atomic Iron Commission on May 1-2.

On Friday, May 1, visiting sculpture artists Dewane Hughes and Hans Molzberger will give a lecture in the Dishman Art Museum at 5:30 p.m.

Festivities on Saturday, May 2, begin with a workshop and demonstration at noon in the Department of Art. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase a star or heart-shaped mold and carve their own design for use in the iron pour. After the iron is poured, it cools for about 20 minutes before the molds will be opened to reveal the new sculptures.
