An Investment in History, Art and Culture

Sloss Furnaces is tied to the people that built this extraordinary place, to the ones who came here to escape poverty, and to land that gave us an abundance of materials found few places on earth. Like so many of the things that really matter in our lives, Sloss Furnaces is a place rich with stories.

Your Impact on WHAT WE DO

Art Matters
Even at 2,800 Degrees

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.
