All fired up—An old-fashioned iron pour by Birmingham's historic industrial museum Sloss Furnaces was the highlight of the opening reception for the Allen Peterson Art Exhibition “Navigating Systems,” which kicked off Oct. 1 in Birmingham–Southern's Durbin Gallery. (Above) Metalsmiths pour scorching hot iron into hardened sand molds in front of an audience of about 300 faculty, staff, students, alumni, and guests. (Below) Bird-sized metal bees are made from the molds, connected to long steel handles, and danced around (still glowing) in the night air. Peterson, a local sculptor and 1994 BSC graduate, was on hand at the reception. His art exhibit can be viewed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Oct. 29.
