It will take more than a little rain to dampen the spirits of art students participating in the Fahrenheit Festival of Fire Sculpture this weekend. The event, presented by the Artcite gallery, involves the creation of wood and straw structures that are set alight.
Members of professor Rod Strickland’s third-year sculpture class plan to build and burn three pieces.
“I am definitely excited. This is my first time putting an artwork out there for the public,” says BFA student Patrick Bodnar.
He says the medium of fire is unpredictable.
