Become part of the Trails Crew!
Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum has 20 internship openings for this coming July and one of them could be yours!
This experience is a fantastic stepping-stone for you, your artwork, and your career as you work alongside experienced artists and interns from all over the world.
Interns are encouraged to create and install a sculpture in the Cast Iron Sculpture Exhibition on the museum grounds.
Interns also benefit from free camping and a large reduction in cost for materials and food through the help of grants and donations already received.
The first week of the workshops is dedicated to the interns to ensure they have plenty of time to cast all of their patterns. The rest of the month is focused on finishing and installing their sculptures as well as helping run the iron workshops and working with participant Artists. Interns pour iron twice a week and can use the speedy melt as needed to cast aluminum. We usually run over 30,000 lbs. of iron and make over 50,000 lbs. of sand molds during the July cast iron sculpture workshops and don’t worry we will keep you safe and teach how to dance with iron.
You will have the opportunity to learn:
Alternative pattern making techniques, various mold making techniques, iron blast furnace operation, various casting techniques, finishing processes for cast iron, public sculpture installation techniques, museum grounds maintenance, and basic woodworking and cement pad casting.
Throughout the course of the month you get to assist participant artists with their sand molds, pouring the molds, tricks on how to finish iron castings, and installing the completed work.
