Metal Casting Students Take Part in Annual Iron Pour

On Friday, the University of Minnesota art department hosted its 30th Annual Thanksgiving Iron Pour at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery. The event allowed students to exhibit the skills they learned in their metal casting classes. “For students, it teaches them the value of their community,” said Tamsie Ringler, assistant professor of sculpture and leader of the pour. “It helps people learn collaboration and how to make their art better."
