Sloss’s Metal Arts program is rooted in Birmingham’s historic connection to iron and steel. The city owes its existence to these metals and to the forming and processing industries that grew up around them.
Although such industries are no longer the dominant forces they once were, they are still an important part of the city’s economic life and offer tremendous resources for the production of metal sculpture.
