The Annual Liberty Arts Iron Pour

November 4, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Join us on November 4th, 2023 in Durham Central Park for our 7th Annual Iron Pour, a Liberty Arts Fundraiser and spectacular public event. FREE TO THE PUBLIC!

In case you’ve never been to our Iron Pour, imagine a gritty ballet of dancers dressed in leathers, boots and helmets. They each have a role. They are all driven by the furnace and the Pour Master who is orchestrating this fiery show where sculptures and scratch blocks are poured. Once poured, the molten iron darkens and hardens into the beautiful tiles and pieces created by you and local artists.

Liberty Arts Studios & Foundry, Durham Central Park and The Forest at Duke present the the 7th annual public Iron Pour at Durham Central Park Saturday, November 4 from 4-9 p.m. All evening and into the night, 5,000 pounds of molten iron will be poured into molds, in an exciting fiery display creating the iron tiles made by the public and sculptures made by NC artists. Additionally, there will be Liberty Arts artists’ work for sale, Liberty Arts T-shirts, beer glasses and hand-blown glass pumpkins. Come enjoy drumming performances from Batalá Durham, Fire Breathers, kid-friendly events, local food trucks and craft beer while watching this very creative and gritty Durham event.
