Taming the Beast:  A Lecture on Fine Art, Craft and Technology
Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon will be presenting a lecture on incorporating digital technology in traditional art and craft on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 10:00 at Shidoni Foundry, 1508 Bishops Lodge Road, Tesuque, NM 87574.

Digital Sculpting, CNC milling, and 3D printing, combined with traditional sculpture, is the way that Bridgette tamed the 15’ tiger that she sculpted for Grambling State University. Shidoni Foundry in Santa Fe, NM is casting the beast!

Bridgette will be discussing the technology, her process and how others are combining the technology in art, craft and science. The creative event will culminate with a viewing of the completed bronze tiger and a demonstration of a Shidoni bronze pour. Space is limited.
