Soleri Bell Foundry
Thursday, January 16, 2020 @ 11 am (rescheduled)
Note: THERE IS A FEE FOR THIS TOUR
A visit to the Cosanti Bronze Foundry is a bit like stepping back into the 1960s. According to the Cosanti website, the foundry, in Paradise Valley, Ariz., is the residence and sculpture studio of Italian-American artist Paolo Soleri and his staff. Soleri (later joined by his students) began work on the experimental buildings in the mid-1950s.
Please see the flyer for additional important information.
Some of the paths are not paved and are uneven so it may be a little hard for people with canes. There is a charge of $15.00 per person (make the checks out to Helen Dodds.) The deadline is Jan 9, 2020 and needs to be sent to:
Helen Dodds `
PO Box 2435
Gilbert, AZ 85299
If you have any question please contact Helen Dodds at 480-821-4727 or email@example.com Please remember to wear your name badge.
