Two interactive art events are slated for Friday in Norman, including a seasonal iron pour and a wearable fashion show

None October 28th, 2010

$20 in advance, $25 the day of the event

"Wearable Art Show" competition

All Hallows' Eve looms, and while some are getting ready to scour the streets in search of candied treats, others are gearing up to create alternative fashions and dabbling with 3,000 degrees of molten iron.

Hosted by the University of Oklahoma's School of Art and Art History and the OU Sculpture Program, the first event, "Fuego Friday," is an annual program that offers students and onlookers a more hands-on approach to art, said associate sculpture professor Jonathan Hils.

"It seems archaic in reference to our digital world," he said, "But it pulls the students out of digital isolation and allows them to work like a team."

The multidisciplinary process involves physics, engineering and science. Attendees can participate by creating a relief mold for $20 in advance or $25 the day of the event, and have a custom iron-cast sculpture poured 1 p.m. Friday in the Northbase studio complex next to the Max Westheimer Airport, 1700 Lexington in Norman.
The "Wearable Art Show" competition begins at 7 p.m. in the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, 555 Elm.

Students in disciplines ranging from theater to graphic design will compete to create winning, wearable works of art. They are not limited to any specific materials, or concepts other than seeing the body as a vehicle to help propel each piece of art, Hils said.
