We are currently in the process of acquiring equipment. It is quite costly to run a foundry, but worth every penny as artistic foundry work builds community and is unique. Every bit of contribution helps us move one step closer to bringing metal casting to the art world in the Heart of Illinois.

In October of 2019, Black Dog Metal Arts will be holding a public iron pour as part of Big Picture Peoria, an annual public art and film festival.

In November of 2019, Black Dog Metal Arts will be hosting the first All Women Iron Pour in Peoria, IL history as part of the Citywide Celebration of Women in the Arts with ArtsPartners.
