Sloss Furnaces is home to one of the largest metal arts programs in the world. Five full-time resident artists study, teach, create and develop the skills and experiences needed to succeed as future artists and educators. With your help, Sloss Furnaces can expand school programs, individual and group classes, and summer high school apprenticeships that may lead to a new career. Our goal is to foster a deeper appreciation of metal casting and fabrication, along with a better understanding of our industrial legacy.
At the very core of our fundraising efforts lies the need for careful preservation of this historic gem. It has been nearly 50 years since these breathtaking structures were stabilized and restored. With your support, we can ensure that Sloss Furnaces remains a place of exploration and wonderment for many decades to come.
There are restoration projects both large and small. We can always use an extra hand!
