About the event

On Thursday, May 23rd from 3:00-4:00 p.m., Jonathan Follett, President of the Walla Walla Foundry, will share fascinating details concerning the fabrication of some of the world’s most ambitious artworks. Beginning with Mine Camp (1991), a seminal sculpture created by artists Edward and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, Follett will also highlight additional projects his organization has produced in the subsequent decades as the Walla Walla Foundry has become one of the largest contemporary art fabricators in the world.

Bronze fragments and an immersive reproduction of Mine Camp are included in the museum’s current exhibition, Beyond Hope: Kienholz and the Inland Northwest, which will be on view through June 29, 2024.

Originally founded in 1980 as a bronze casting foundry, the Walla Walla Foundry now employs over 100 people and produces work in a range of materials and through multiple processes. The foundry casts in various alloys, including bronze, copper, brass, stainless steel, silver and zinc. It also produces work in wood, resin, glass, and wax. It houses an advanced technological infrastructure encompassing a digital design and modeling department, high resolution CNC machines, 3D scanning, and high precision water jet cutting services.

The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. For more information, please visit
