“Drawing from our background in foundry and creation, we will offer our guests a unique education in the creative and manufacturing processes that go into bringing fine art to fruition,” Jamie Howard said. “We will host live demonstrations, lectures and meet-and-greets throughout the year as well as spotlight artistic mediums, techniques and themes showcased in our collection.”
