Foundry to Finish (Press Release)
Get a rare look at how bronze sculpture is born in Foundry to Finish. Visitors explore a process called direct lost-wax castinga method that yields a single, unique bronze cast of an artist’s original clay-and-wax model. Thirteen step-by-step models illustrate the sculpting and casting process. Through X-radiographs, visitors can even get a glimpse inside an original sculpture to see firsthand evidence of how the bronze was cast. The installation complements Cast in Bronze: French Sculpture from Renaissance to Revolution, an international touring exhibition also on view.
