Foundry Patterns Abstraction #1 was recently installed at the Center for Education, Innovation & Traning (CEIT) at CCAC. Opening for classes in January 2024, the new 60,000-square-foot Center represents the college's longstanding commitment to preparing the region's workforce with the skills employers need now and in the future.
Artists Cory Bonnet, Nate Lucas, and Mia Tarducci created this installation featuring salvaged wood foundry patterns from National Tube, McKeesport, PA, oil on canvas, oil and pigment on Maple PureBond and FSC certified panel, and gold and copper leaf.
Thanks to Casey Droege and Andrea Petrillo for finding the perfect spot to showcase this collaborative work.
In addition to preserving, restoring, and exhibiting its historic still mill collection, Patterns of Meaning aims to inspire and facilitate workforce development in manufacturing and materials.
