A statement about the project from Jodie Bliss:

“The purpose of this project is to expand my audience to individuals and groups throughout the region by bringing the community together to create a piece of public art. This sculpture will be built by members of the community around the theme of Forging Genuine Human Connections and Embracing Empathy. I will offer workshops to people who may never have had the opportunity to learn to weld, to participate in an iron pour, or to make a piece of public art.

In the Welding Workshops students will learn to weld, create a sculpture to take home, and will be invited to work on the public art piece. In the Iron Pour Workshops students will learn to carve sand tile molds which will be poured at the Iron Pour event.  They will carve one for themselves, and will be offered a second complementary tile to carve as a donation to the public art piece being fabricated in the Welding Workshops. With the purchase of a workshop they will receive a ticket to the Iron Pour Event.”
