KSU Iron Team participates in national conference
Students receive accolades and recognition
The Kennesaw State University Department of Visual Arts Iron Team recently participated in the annual National Conference on Cast Iron Art in Birmingham, Ala. The event was held at the Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark.
With the ability to cast aluminum and bronze on campus, Ayokunle Odeleye, KSU professor of art, and Chris Dziejowski, KSU studio coordinator and technician, have steadily worked through the past four years to incorporate iron casting at KSU. The addition of Page Burch, evening studio technician, in 2010 resulted in the successful construction of KSU's first iron cupola, "Sweet Paige," (right).
