Scottsdale Community College’s Sculpture Department presents its “Annual Fall Iron Pour: KOJI XI” Saturday, Nov. 14.

The visual spectacle runs from 4-7 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

It features Scottsdale Community College sculpture students collaborating with sculpture artists from around the country as they pour molten iron ore into their own original sculpture molds. The pour will occur on the north side of the arts building.

Those wishing to take photos are encouraged to be there at 4 p.m. when the pour begins, a press release stated.

A limited number of scratch blocks will be available for $10. The scratch blocks allow visitors to create and cast their own unique tiles. Those wishing to purchase a scratch block are encouraged to get there at 3 p.m., the release stated.

KOJI XI T-shirts designed by Peggy Deal’s Graphic Arts students will be available for $15. Proceeds for this event benefit the SCC Sculpture Program.

SCC is located at 9000 E. Chaparral Road in Scottsdale.
