Arts On Fire

Downtown — By on May 31, 2012 at 2:21 pm

This may very well be the coolest thing going on this weekend: a NEPA festival that celebrates blast / iron furnaces, as well as local artists.  Launched in 2009, the Arts On Fire Festival is a three day celebration of arts, heritage, industry and community held the first weekend of June at the Iron Furnaces in Scranton, a four acre site along Roaring Brook and managed by The Anthracite Heritage Museum and Iron Furnaces. The Iron Furnaces is a former working iron foundry from the 1840’s where many of the early immigrants to Scranton worked. Set against this historic backdrop, visitors to the Arts on Fire Festival can enjoy hands on history and the best of contemporary art. Count me in. Click the awesome poster for more info:
