I am a student at OCAD (Ontario College of Art & Design). I am posting this in the hopes that I can gain your support. OCAD has announced they are planning to shut down their bronze casting foundry. As a sculpture student, I am devastated by this news. The school has been moving towards design, and I fear that closure of the foundry will destroy OCAD's reputation as a choice school for fine art studies.
For anyone that would like more information, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
. There is also a facebook group called "SAVE THE OCAD BRONZE FOUNDRY!"
which currently has over 500 members. OCAD students and alumni, as well as concerned artists and members of the community have posted their thoughts on this issue. We can use as much support as possible!
