You are cordially invited to attend a rare first time ever Patina Event on site at the Charles E. Gagnon Museum and Sculpture Garden. Two master artisans from the Modern Art Foundry in New York City will create a new chemical patina on Gagnon’s bronze String Quartet in the sculpture garden in spring. Students in New York City often enjoy seeing a patina created when they tour the art foundry. Now Rochester students may witness this exciting fusion of chemicals into bronze sculpture to create a color change on site in the Gagnon Museum sculpture garden. This is a rare opportunity for Rochester students and anyone, who wants to learn more about how a bronze sculpture is created and finished. The Charles E. Gagnon Museum and Sculpture Garden is an art, education and healing museum that showcases the seventy year legacy of inspirational and peaceful bronze sculptures of Minnesota sculptor Charles E. Gagnon. Please schedule your visit at the following link.
