Mobile Sculpture Workshop
The Mobile Sculpture Workshop, an outreach program of The Industrial Arts Center, is a summer workshop aimed at demonstrating the techniques of safe and proper welding and metal fabrication while producing a large-scale sculpture for public display. This program is an effort to inspire the youth of Pittsburgh and its neighbors with an opportunity of design, conception and completion of public art.

Local students are offered one-on-one training to learn basic techniques of welding and metal fabrication. Qualified students will be accepted based on their individual interest and passion. Students receive a modest stipend at the end of the summer for their participation in the project.
Apprentices will guide the vision, planning and creation of a large sculpture that will be completed and installed in the Pittsburgh area. Before completion, the evolving work will live on a flat-bed trailer, mobile and ready for the next scheduled event.
The work-in-progress sculpture will travel to 12 community events and festivals throughout the summer of 2017. Apprentices will demonstrate live sculpture making and metal work at events throughout the community.
