    The ASME Columbia Basin Section invites you to attend a tour of The Walla
    Walla Foundry at 405 Woodland Avenue in Walla Walla on Friday, November

    The tour will last 1.5 to 2.0 hours. There are several areas on campus
    where they pour the metal, perform welding, create the wax positives and
    add the final color to the metal. There will be a presentation by the
    architect including a slide show of current and past projects. Finished
    sculpture can be seen including a 25 feet tall tree made of bronze and
    stainless steel by the LA artist Paul McCarthy.

    We will walk around the campus and, if interested, we can drive a few
    blocks off campus to the CNC milling building where they digitally carve
    large scale wood sculptures. The tour is limited to 20-25 people (over 15
    years of age). Please wear closed-toe shoes, sensible for walking. Safety
    glasses and ear plugs will be handed out at the foundry.

    After the tour, everyone is welcome to join us for a no-host lunch in
    downtown Walla Walla. Location to be determined at the time of the tour.
