Heritage Discovery Center

The Johnstown Area Heritage Association and the Artist-Blacksmith’s Association of North America (ABANA) are partnering to present a new temporary exhibition, #150mmchallenge — a display of 150 pieces of metalwork that was curated and produced by Delyth Done and Ambrose Burne of the United Kingdom’s Hereford College of Arts.

Each piece (like the beautiful wreath above) is made from exactly the same amount of steel by a range of people passionate about forged metal design — from students, amateurs, through to key industry professionals across the globe.

Like all amenities in the Heritage Discovery Center, admission to the exhibition is included with your purchase of a ticket (and free to JAHA members).
